A Happy Heart

"A happy heart makes the face cheerful..."   Proverbs 15:13
"A cheerful heart is good medicine..."   Proverbs 17:22

 

This weekend, I enjoyed quality time with my wife and my kids.  We watched movies, we went swimming, and we went to church.  The best thing about my weekend was simple: I loved hearing my children laugh loudly!  Proverbs 15:13 says, "A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit."  Proverbs 17:22 says, "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."  Solomon tells us in Ecclesiastes 3:4 that there is "a time to weep and a time to laugh."  This weekend was a time to laugh for us.  The loud laughter of my kids brought me happiness.  It was good medicine!  I had a happy heart and a cheerful face to go along with it!  I thank God for my family!  He has blessed me with an amazing wife and beautiful children.  And this weekend, He reminded me of what really makes me happy: being loved by Him and loving Him in return and having the capacity to love my family and be loved by them in return.

I would love to hear your comments...
