Chapter 7, Page 9, Book 17



Yesterday is experience.  Tomorrow is hope.  Today is getting from one to another as best we can.

John M. Henry


We can all live well each day—with laughter, the Lord, and the little things in life.


Laughter is the outward evidence of inward joy, and it is proven to make you feel better. I once heard someone say that laughter is like internal jogging, and I think that is so true. Laughter improves emotional and mental health, it lifts our spirits, and it dispels worry. It’s almost impossible to be anxious and laugh at the same time. This is why we would be wise to express joy in laughter every chance we get.


Take Time to Laugh

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.

Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4,

Don’t keep joy to yourself. Share the good medicine of a joyful heart with others. The little things of life are the ones that often matter the most.


For today and its blessings, I owe the world an attitude of gratitude.

Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4 is one of my favorite verses! (... as are the wonderful song lyrics.)

I don't always agree with her philosophies, but I love Anne Lamott's saying: "Laughter is carbonated holiness."

Have a beautiful day!

Had a lot of laughter today at our place with extended family coming up for a meal and a swim. So true how you can't be anxious and laugh at the same time. No anxious thoughts today indeed!

laughter is the best medicine, for sure. "The little things of life are the ones that often matter the most."
