One of my dear friends is a Christian Comedian. We teamed up for “Laughs before Lunch”, last Summer. Her name is Darlene Rholes. She got everyone laughing and I spoke of keeping the joy of the Lord in your heart…NO MATTER WHAT!
Yesterday Darlene shared with me her acronym for living. I think it’s a great life philosophy and wanted to share it with you.
A Attitude, have a healthy, upbeat Christ centered attitude.
L Laugh, laughter is good medicine.
I Initiate, don’t wait for someone else to ask you to do, initiate.
V Volunteer, do unto others, and give of yourself it’s good for your soul.
E Elevate, lift up others, your kind words will go very far.
When I listened to her explain this acronym, I thought of how I practice my own life and realized I am a little short on laughter. Her suggestion was to get some Carol Burnette CD’s or some other wholesome comedian CD’s and watch them. I think I will intentionally look to laughter today. What about you? How are you doing on these skills?
Proverbs 17:22 “ A joyful heart is good medicine.”
I hope this acronym helps you too.
Be fit and be blessed,
