According to a study I found online (which means it’s 100% accurate) I read that children laugh 400 times a day compared to adults who laugh 17 times a day.
Sometimes life gets a little rough, but we all need a bit of joy in our lives. We often talk about the more solemn warnings of the Bible…how to live our lives or how not to live our lives. But the Bible also talks about joy and laughter.
“This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24) Laughter is good for the soul even though, as it says in Proverbs 14:13, in laughter the heart may be in pain. A cheerful heart is good medicine. (Proverbs 17:22)
Today I have an assignment for you,The Joy Ride Challenge, should you choose to accept it. It may or may not be easy depending on where you find yourself today
Here’s how…If you haven’t yet, watch the Joy Ride video. Then, pick something from the video and go out and do it! Blow bubbles in your milk, make a splash, do a silly dance…
I would love to know what you pick. Laughter is contagious, so please share.
God knows your struggles, let him have them for today, even if it’s just for a moment while you take a deep breath and maybe find your laughter.
EMBRACE THE CRAZY!
