This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: Rejoice in Today

I sincerely thank God that I rarely deal with depression. I grew up in a large Italian family that loves to laugh out loud. I mean, really loud! I have one uncle who laughs so loud that it used to scare my childhood friends, until I could explain to them, "It's just the way he laughs." This particular uncle was born with a serious disability, but he has lived beyond all of his doctor's expectations. No one expected him to live past 40, but he's in his 80's now and still laughing out loud.

My favorite teachers in school were the ones who made me laugh. And I believe I am always eager to learn from my pastor who laces his messages with humor, because the laughter opens my mind and my heart to receive.

Proverbs 17:22 says, "A merry heart does good, like medicine ..." So, take some good medicine today and find a reason to rejoice and be glad!
