What's Your Cheerful Word?

“Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up.”
Proverbs 12:25 MSG

What's your cheerful word today?

It's cold here in Minnesota. Yesterday I read something that said the temperature outside on days like this is "Angry!" I thought that was funny and pretty fitting.

When the temps turn angry, what do you do to keep warm and cheerful? What's your cheerful word today?

Lately I've been holding on to "thank you!" It's a simple way to focus on the good in someone that puts me in a right frame of mind too. It's tough to worry when I'm grateful. It's tough to think ill of another when I'm thankful for them. It's easy to be cheerful when I'm giving a sincere and thankful smile! Of course it's not always easy to hold onto thankfulness, but I'm getting better at it.

How about you? What keeps you from the edge of worry and in a cheerful place? Do share.

Blessings today and always! –M
