Life is serious enough we need to be reminded to laugh together to help ease the tension that life can bring. Laughter is a great reminder of the joy of being together. In the Bible, Nehemiah, encourages the people by telling them that the joy of the Lord is their strength. Strength is not found in being so busy or so put together that you don’t have time to crack a smile. Strength comes when we slow down long enough to experience God’s joy in our lives. If you are at your brink, pause and remember the last time you laughed. Commit to doing things that bring smiles to your faces together again.
The hopes of the godly result in happiness, but the expectations of the wicked come to nothing.
~ Proverbs 10:28 [NLT]
