Thirteen Reasons to Laugh

A cheerful heart [a good laugh] is a good medicine; 
But a broken spirit drieth up the bones.
Proverbs 17:22

There hasn’t been much in the news to laugh about recently. So today is devoted to laughter. 

Art Linkletter got it right. Kids do say the darnedest things.

Take, for instance, the jewels of wisdom by first graders who were shown the first part of some well-known proverbs and were asked to complete them. 

The kids told the unvarnished truth. And gave some good advice.

(1) Don’t change horses …………until they stop running.

(2) Strike while the …………………………..bug is close.

(3) It’s always darkest before ……………. Daylight Savings Time

Kids do indeed say the darnedest things. Do you have any to add?

Lord, remind us that You want us to be joyful, even in suffering. And to laugh. Give us the innocent hearts of children.
