Spirit has often said laughter is the best medicine for whatever ails us, whether it be physical, mental, or spiritual. Here are a few of their thoughts about laughter, joy, and fun.


  • Laughter, joy, and fun have many powerful benefits for you, and for your bodies, minds, and spirits.
  • Any thing less than joy, less than happiness is not what God wants for you.
  • You will always know what’s right for you by the joy (and laughter) it brings into your lives.
  • Have you ever asked yourself, “Why am I here?” We can answer that question with one word: Joy. And, we would add, laughter.
  • We’ll leave you today with these thoughts:
  • Have fun. Love more. Play more. Laugh more.
  • Life is not serious. It’s supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be joyful. It’s that simple. Keep it simple. Don’t make it complicated or hard.
