LOL, HaHa, Sooo Cute, :], ROFL

Proverbs 17:22a  “A cheerful heart is good medicine.”  NLT

On a lighter note today we could all use some cheering up.  It’s been a long winter and spring still seems a ways off.  Many of us can say this by just looking out the window, but many can also say this on an emotional level. 

Even when David was so sick, he had that cheerful heart.  In the picture above he’s hugging his snowman.  He had a way of always cheering people up with his infectious smile, his little random acts of kindness, or his way of letting people know what’s really important in life when they would be stressed. 

I remember how he’d go out of his way to help complete strangers with groceries, holding the door open, or sharing his livelihood with them.  One time he had just moved into an apartment and heard that a neighbor didn’t have money for food.  He not only gave them some food, but also gave them money to buy more food.  He didn’t have much, but he gave anyway. 

On any given day he’d be doing simple things just to cheer someone up.  Like the picture here where he just made a funny face to add some cheer to a normal day.


He was always the first to volunteer for just about anything put in front of him.  I know we all can learn a lesson here from him.

As you and I prepare for Easter, let’s pass along God’s love with a cheerful heart.  It can be as simple as a smile or as much as paying for someone's groceries.  I am confident when we do that we’ll feel more cheerful too.

Prayer:  Lord, Help me to be cheerful and when I’m discouraged help me to trust in you.  Send those cheerful heart people to me too, especially when I need them the most.
