DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT FRIDAY - A JOYFUL HEART. #7


"Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again."

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. - Pro 17:22.

Wow! That was a quick week! Sorry I am late for the Friday post, but Jean and I have just returned from a couple of days away, on a very peaceful Mountain retreat, our batteries are charged, and already we are preparing for an exciting weekend! More time to spend with our families, do the little chores around the house, mow the lawn, weed the garden, tidy up around the house, settle in with a nice book, watch a favourite movie, have a favourite meal/BBQ with friends and family, etc,.

And then for the most exciting item of the weekend... CHURCH on Sunday! Hallelujah! Time to Praise and Worship the Lord, time to fellowship with the saints, time for a challenging Sermon, time to bask in the love and warmth of the brothers and sisters in the Lord! Hallelujah! Praise the wonderful Name of Jesus! Here are a few laughs/thoughts to keep you going till then...

ONE LINERS:
"Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever."
"Adam and Eve had an ideal marriage. He didn't have to hear about all the men she could have married, and she didn't have to hear about the way his mother cooked."
"Knock, knock. Who's there? Goliath. Goliath who? Goliath down, you looketh tired."
"We all have expiration dates, but only God can read the bar code."
"We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing."

WHO ARE YOU?
At his request, each morning three-year-old Ray's mother pinned a bath towel to the back shoulders of his size two T-shirt. Immediately in his young imaginative mind the towel became a brilliant magic blue and red cape. And he became Superman.

Outfitted each day in his "cape," Ray's days were packed with adventure and daring escapades. He was Superman. This fact was clearly pointed out when his mother enrolled him in kindergarten class.

During the course of the interview, the teacher asked Ray his name."Superman," he answered politely and without pause.The teacher smiled, cast an appreciative glance at his mother, and asked again, "Your real name, please." Again, Ray answered, "Superman." Realizing the situation demanded more authority, or maybe to hide amusement, the teacher closed her eyes for a moment, then in a voice quite stern, said, "I will have to have your real name for the records."

Sensing he'd have to play straight with the teacher, Ray slid his eyes around the room, hunched closer to her, and patting a corner of frayed towel at his shoulder, answered in a voice hushed with conspiracy, "Clark Kent."

THE BEAUTY OF LIFE
Sunset and sunrise
Rain when the sky cries
Rainbows and moonshine
Dew on a tall pine
Flowers and butterflies
Sunny days and blue skies
The oceans waves crashing
Waterfalls splashing
Mountains with snow
Gentle breezes that blow
Icy peaks with frozen sky
Lonely deserts always dry
Wild windy nights
Filled with starry lights
A raging storm
Before a misty dawn
All of these things
God to us brings
The beauty of this earth
Makes life all the more worth.--Author Unknown.

SO ONCE AGAIN LET US REMIND OURSELVES, THAT BEING CHEERFUL KEEPS YOU HEALTHY. IT IS SLOW DEATH TO BE GLOOMY ALL THE TIME!

Loving Father, help me by the power of the Holy Spirit, to remind myself that Jesus died to set me free, help me Lord to live that life, and be determined in Him to have a joyful heart, in Jesus wonderful name I pray, amen!

HAVE A GREAT AND GODLY WEEKEND!

Be encouraged!
