Laugh and the world Laughs with you cry and you cry alone.
Smile even though your heart is breaking.
Get your act together and be strong or others will think you’ve got it all wrong.
Wear a mask don’t be real someone may think you can feel.
Fake it till you make it even if your feeling blue no one will know but you.
Laugh… never shed a tear someone may hear.
Don’t you know Laughter is the best medicine so give it a go even if it’s all show.
Smile and you’ll have a good day and it will take all your troubles away.
If others want to spoil your fun they need to know your boundaries are number 1 – besides wearing your heart on your sleeve means you have to admit you are in need.
Don’t shed a tear someone may hear and you don’t want to spoil their day by putting your emotions on display.
Go along with the rest even though it may not be for the best.
James 4:8-10 Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.A forced smile or Laughter only weighs us down much more then a genuine frown.Proverbs 14: 13 Even in Laughter the heart is sorrowful and the end of that mirth is heaviness.There is a time for everything including Laughter which is a gift from God the same as Tears are, they help us to heal and God saves them close to His Heart and will change them into tears of Joy, for His Love and Compassion has been with us from the start?Ecclesiastes 3:4 There is a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.
Some Laughter comes from the wrong focus if we put others down it is not a good sound.Is it important for us to be the life of the party laughing and playing the fool but regretting it the morning after and feeling it was a disaster?Do we know the difference between Joy in our Heart and worldly Happiness that soon departs?A heart full of God’s Joy continues on as a wondrous song through the good and bad and even when we are sad.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:27-30Do we also offer comfort to others who are hurting or do we walk away intending to return someday, or maybe who can say.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
How blessed we are to be The Body of Christ, to reach out to others in Love both in our words and actions and then we reach out to a hurting World.Galatians 6:2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Christian Love from both of us Always – Anne.
