"A Joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones"
Joy is certainly an important aspect to married life. We all know how much more fun it is to be around someone that is joyful opposed to someone who is grumpy or just to busy to pay attention to you. Husbands obviously are like everybody else and they will enjoy being around us much more if we are projecting joy.
Debi Pearl in "Created to be his Helpmeet" has a wonderful chapter on having a merry heart and she ends with these words:
"Always remember that the day you stop smiling is the day you stop trying to make your marriage heavenly, and it is the first day leading to your divorce proceedings."
"All the days of the afflicted are bad, But a cheerful heart has a continual feast." Proverbs 15:15
Today is a day that I am going to try to be joyful in every way! How about you?
