Laughter is Good Medicine

Encouragement through laughter

Proverbs 17:22 (NIV) - A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

Laughter is a gift from God.

Laughter is a great way to stay encouraged.

We are dealing with difficulties following Hurricane Sally. We are also still dealing with coronavirus concerns.

During these circumstances there are still opportunities to help us maintain our sense of humor.

I like this description of laughter: Laughter is one of the greatest mental tonics known to man. It is the second most powerful human emotion we as people can possibly express (the first being love). Laughter can dispel anxiety, help manage stress, depression, fear, and worry. It can stimulate the healing process. Laughter provides strong medical, psychological, social, and even spiritual benefits.
Laughter is like internal jogging. It enhances the respiratory system, helps oxygenate the body, relaxes tense muscles, and is an all-around pain killer. It will lower pulse and blood pressure. Laughter can pave the way for a new and exciting outlook on life. It is the universal communicator that can cross all boundaries of race and culture. You can’t laugh and be mad; you can’t laugh and worry. Stress, worry, and laughter are not compatible. (from Encyclopedia of 15,000 Illustrations: Signs of the Times)

My prayer for you today is that you are looking for opportunities to laugh.

Expecting God’s Best,
Bro Rob
