From Pastor Davies – 5/25
Do you know what the longest word in the English language is? Smiles. There’s a “mile” between the first and last letters!
One smile really can go a long way. Scientists have proven that smiling and laughing are actually beneficial to our health. Why, then, in our health-conscious society do so many of us wear frowns on our faces so much of the time? Why don’t we laugh more often?
Life’s problems are no laughing matter, yet laughter puts sanity back into our living. Laughter eases our tension and helps us break rigid patterns of apathy and pessimism.
So, go ahead, turn up those corners of your mouth! Smile! Laugh! And remember this: “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).
Thank you, God, for your gift of laughter. Help me to live joyfully each and every day. Amen.
Have a great week! And see you in worship!
