Laughter is GOOD Medicine!



Proverbs 17:22 says:
A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired.

Some of us find it harder than, others to find a way, in midst of our day... to have a cheerful disposition, or a merry heart, or to find laughter.


One of the greatest gift's that God gave my son, was the ability to have a cheerful disposition. It seems to be his mission in life to find ways to create laughter. From the moment he was born, there has not been a day, that he has not made me laugh... even when I'm mad at him, or my day appears to be filled with struggles. He was sent as a gift to me and the world. He reflects the character of God in unusual ways, and I am blessed by it.

This Friday was "Old School Spirit Day" at his school. This is what he came up with. I'm still laughing, and grateful, for the gift of laughter and his ability to help my heart have a cheerful disposition.

I'm so glad that he is still able to be himself - who he was created to be.

I showed Mark and he immediately called Jonathan up to see it. Jonathan was a little freaked out by the 'hairy' chest. My son is a little bit hair-aphobic.

Mark loved it! He loved reminding Jonathan that they're related!!

I think this picture will be at Matt's wedding - it's a keeper.
