A Laugh A Day Keeps the Doctor Away

There is a YIDDISH PROVERB: “What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.”

Debbie Macomber, one of my favorite authors, keeps a leather-bound book she calls: The Laughter Journal. Not a bad idea.

Bill and I spend a lot of time in the laughter mode. In the ministry, we learn to laugh at ourselves. It is the spice of life. Now some information to make you smile.

This is my sock monkey George.

The history of the SOCK MONKEY. I know you have always wondered. Have laid awake at night thinking about where the sock monkey began. The first RED HEEL socks were manufactured in 1890 in Rockford, Illinois. In the 1900’s mothers started making these socks into sock monkeys for children. The socks are sturdy and comfortable work socks worn mainly by farmers and factory workers. NOW YOU KNOW.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)
