Being a Friend - Who is Fun

Enjoying life together is an essential part of any friendship.  There are times when it’s necessary to be serious but there is also nothing quite like a good laugh together.  The Bible says in Proverbs 17:22 that, “A merry heart does good, like medicine” and it has actually been scientifically proven that laughter can heal your body.

ABC news reported that if you “laugh on a regular basis, and you can even boost your immune system, according to some research.

A study of 20 men and women conducted at the University of Maryland School of Medicine found that 95 percent of the volunteers experienced increased blood flow while watching a funny movie, such as "There's Something About Mary," while 74 percent had decreased blood flow during a heavier picture, such as "Saving Private Ryan." The benefits lasted about 12 to 24 hours.

The results, presented at a March meeting of the American College of Cardiology, point to a strong connection between laughter and cardiovascular health.

"The recommendation for a healthy heart may one day be to exercise, eat right and laugh a few times a day," said Dr. Michael Miller, who conducted the study.”  

So girls, why not choose to be a fun friend?  Romans 12:15 says, “Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.”  This means that there are times to be happy and times to weep, we need to find the balance, we need to understand what our friends need.  Of course there are times to weep, to console our friends in difficult times.  However, there are also times to laugh and be happy.  We need to have fun together.  We need to stimulate our endorphins.  We need to enjoy the precious life that God has given us and live it to the full. 

It was Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”   He actually wants us to have a full and fun life.  Let us make an effort to be fun friends.  Let us find ways to enjoy life together and to bring out the best in each other.  Do you actually enjoy your friendships or are they all hard work? Don’t miss out on having fun and make sure you are being fun too.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
