Live, Laugh and Love

This makes me laugh every time I see it! The daughter messing with my good friend Janice.

Live ~ Today I lived! Listened to music I enjoyed, rented a movie I am excited to sit down and watch, drank tea with a good friend today, made lunch plans with an old friend for lunch Friday, read another chapter of a book I am reading, watching a beautiful sunset right now and I wrote on a wall in my scrapbook room, actually I wrote six words on my wall ~ Think it, dream it create it.

Love ~ Ran some errands for Dave, told him what a great dad and husband he is, called and talked to Alison, told Elliot and Andrew how lucky I am to have them as my sons and sent a gift and card to my secret sister.

Laugh ~ Laughed at a story Dave told me today, laughed at the bank tellers joke this morning, laughed with Molly at Starbucks this morning about our kids, laughed at some jokes in an old readers digest I threw away as I was de-cluttering my book shelf and I laughed at a neighbors story today.


Did you know that laughter makes us healthy? Well it does and the Bible even says that Laughter is like a good medicine. I want to be more like Abraham and let out the laugh of faith. I also want to be in the habit of taking my medicine of Laughter everyday. I want everyone healthy, so think about how many times a day you laugh. I was thinking the other day about how we are living in some tough times right now. Tough times require a lot of laughter, so we don't lose our joy.



Psalms 37 is a beautiful passage...I read it through to the end and it says, we win!

~ enjoy

Ahhh Christine. I have those three words posted at the top of my blog. I am so glad to see you actually living them.
Love the picture of your daughter "bugging" (for lack of a better word) your friend!
My word "dream". Bought it at . . . of all places . . . SteinMart. It didn't go up quite as easy as they said, but you just start hanging onto it with the tool they provide and all goes well.
If you are into scrapbooking and if you have a Cricut, make it yourself!!!! Probably much easier! I Love my ROOM!!!
Hugs. Karen
