"No Reason to Smile"
A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a broken spirit dries up the bones.
-Proverbs 17:22

    A surprising thing takes place in those whose temper is tempered b the Holy Spirit --bad temper is replaced by a growing sense of humor.  God has given us the power of humor, not only to laugh at things, but to laugh off things.  I am not suggesting that we ought to use laughter to deny realities, but humor often reduces things to their proper size.
     I once heard a preacher say:  "There is no good in a movement or a person where there is no good humor, for goodness has laughter as a corollary."  There is something basically wrong with a person who, at appropriate times, cannot break out into hearty laughter.  I heard recently of a member of the Irish Republican Army who was wonderfully converted.  He spent the first month after his conversion in the home of a minister who said of him:  "It was two weeks before I saw him smile, and when I spoke to him about this, he said:  "I have been in a grim business, plotting against people...and the way I was living, there was just no reason to smile"  How tragic!  "Just no reason to smile"  Depend on it, where you cannot smile, you cannot live --you just exist.
SMILE!!!!
