Today is Global Belly Laugh Day, and according to the website this day has three intentions
to celebrate and remember past laughter
to connect with positive laughter
to learn by experience the health, high achievement and happiness benefits
of taking a moment to stop, breathe, smile and laugh out loud.
Mirth is God's medicine. Everybody ought to bathe in it.
Henry Ward Beecher
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The most wasted of all days is that in which we have not laughed.
I remember a while back when there was a video going around of a laughing baby. No one could watch it with out laughing themselves. I know I couldn’t help but laugh. They say that kids do laugh a lot more than adults. We don’t laugh half as much as we should. One thing about life is that we were made to enjoy it. Sometimes we forget that. God made every thing and every thing was good. We were given the gift of laughter and to choose not to enjoy it is denying the gift.
I’ve found that that laughter is truly good medicine. I always feel better after a good laugh. If you haven’t anything to laugh about, I’ll give you permission to laugh at me. I do it often myself.
Laughter always reminds me of sunshine, it warms up a cold day like nothing else.
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday! Remember to laugh!
A friend has written asking for prayers saying: a close friend is in need of prayers for her grandson who is 6 months old and has a blood clot in his brain. Please join me in praying for this dear little one. May the dear Lord bless him with healing and a speedy recovery.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
If you are too busy to laugh, you are too busy.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1343. Laughter a gift that warms the heart
1344. family and friends to laugh with, remember those days around the campfire
1345. for sunshine, could it be reflecting God’s laughter?
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
Laughter is an instant vacation.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
