Long ago in a land far away there lived a King who was considered one of the wisest men who has ever lived. He was the son of a shepherd boy chosen by the hand of God to be the King over all of Isreal. His name was Solomon, and he ruled the land of Israel after his father, David. As the comfort of the Psalms was to David, so was wisdom to this man. And as the pen is to paper, so was the quill and papyrus in the hands of King Solomon. Over three thousand years ago, this wise man penned many of the axioms recorded in the book of Proverbs. In the seventeenth chapter, verse twenty-two King Solomon recorded these truths with the following words:
Many centuries later Diana Wells writing about the heart for Healthline, a medical journal recorded these words, “Laughing is good for your heart. It reduces stress and gives a boost to your immune system.”
And Science Daily says: “happiness protects against falling ill. As a result, happy people live longer. The size of the effect on longevity is comparable to that of smoking or not.” (Smoking).
So go ahead, enjoy a good laugh, because even the wisest in biblical times and those who study the human heart understand that a belly laugh from a good joke provides what some doctors cannot. Good health and healing.
How about a little joyful medicine? Double click the name Jeanie Robertson underlined below. ( and LOLouder! if you will?)

Great! Watched Jeanne Robertson talk about her husband, “Left Brain”. Consulted with my ‘in house’ expert about the differences, but neither of us knew. So, now I have to study left vs right. What a hoot.

Jeanne Robertson has so many great YouTube clips, I think that the one that makes me laugh every time I watch it is called, “Don’t Bungee Jump Naked.” You will laugh so hard tears will come and your gut will hurt. I am glad that you enjoyed what I wrote. It is my plan for it to be short and sweet with a laugh at the end. Blessings, Gary
