"A joyful heart is good medicine,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones."
~ Proverbs 17:22
Did it ever occur to you that a joyful heart is a decision? Hmmm . . . . confession time . . . . "in clearing out the clutter", I have come to realize that I have not been choosing a joyful heart lately. I was confessing to a dear friend, and she gave me some great advice. She told me to take a break from the things that I was letting weigh me down and choose to do something fun with my family. It was just that simple. I came downstairs and chose a fun activity for myself and the boys. Hugs, kisses and laughter were the balm that I needed today. Now, I know that choosing a joyful heart is a daily (hourly) choice, so now I get to go forth and choose to be joyful. Good advice from a dear friend - choose joyfulness.
