Just laugh?


Because, laughter is the best medicine.  Or as Prov. 17:33 says, “A Cheerful heart is good medicine.”

This scene from the “Money Pit” never fails to make me laugh.  Please watch it til the very end.  Do you “feel” Walter?  Can you identify?

When you’re about to lose it, when you’re at the end of your rope, when it can’t get much worse, when you think you’re going to go insane try laughter for much needed divine perspective.  I guess we can either laugh or cry.  Why not try laughing?

Some laughter quotes to ponder for Walter and for us:

“Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain.”
– Charlie Chaplin
