___Guess what? Laughing is good for you! Studies show that happy
people are healthier people. God told us that in His word a long time
ago. He also told us that the way to be happier was to obey Him, love
our neighbors and stay close to the Lord.
___Another way we can be happier is by filling our minds with good,
happy things and avoiding unhappy things like unpleasant stories or
movies. We can learn good clean jokes and tell them to our family and
friends. We can play fun games and dance and sing.
___Finally, when we take the time to count the many blessings God
gives us, it helps us be thankful for those blessings. That makes us even
more glad! God loves His children and He wants us to be happy!]
[Note: Some big words for Mom and Dad: Science corroborates the
merry-heart verse. It has been discovered that laughter increases
endorphin production and strengthens the immune system, too.]
John 15:10-11 "If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I
have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this
so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete."
A merry heart doeth
good, like a medicine . . .
Prov 17:22 (KJV)
