SOME CHEER FOR YOU
Do you find some cheer in your day to day life? Sometimes it’s hard to be cheerful when you aren’t feeling well. That’s when it’s good to try to think about things that make you happy.
WHAT BRINGS CHEER?
Proverbs 17:22 says “a cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” I really believe that is true. When I focus on things that make me sad and start to worry, it seems that all the cheer just flies out the window. When I begin to give thanks instead for the blessings I have each day, my spirit does start to become more cheerful.
When I see the sunshine coming in through the windows brightening up the room it brings me cheer. There is something happy about seeing the sun shining and warming the earth. I can also be cheered when it is raining heavily. I love to hear it beating on our metal roof and watch it pouring down quenching the dry parched land.
It’s also fun to do things to cheer other people. Sometimes to cheer myself I will take a walk outside around the yard and look for things through a lens snapping photos that bring me joy. Today I did just that and I’d like to share them with you maybe bringing you a little cheer, too.
