*Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, “Why is the bride dressed in white?” The mother replied, “Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.” The child thought about this for a moment then said, “So why is the groom wearing black?”

*A police recruit was asked during the exam, “What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?” He answered, “Call for backup.”

*A Sunday School teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to “Honor thy father and thy mother,” she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?” Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, “Thou shalt not kill.”

*Two boys were walking home from Sunday School after hearing strong preaching on the devil. One said to the other, “What do you think about all this Satan stuff?” The other boy replied, “Well, you know how Santa Claus turned out. It’s probably just your dad.”

*A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running as fast as she could, trying not to be late for Bible class. As she ran she prayed, “Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late! Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late!” While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell, getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up, brushed herself off, and started running again! As she ran she once again began to pray, “Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late…But please don’t shove me either!” 🙂

Thanks, Karla!

“Frown and you frown alone. Smile and the whole world smiles with you.”

That may be a little stretch but we all know that smiles are contagious.

However, December can sometimes be a lonely and “depressing” month for some people, so here is a list of things you can do to lift your spirits.

  • Be Thankful. Think about what you have. This sounds like the whole “Count your blessings” thing all over again, but it really is important. Remember good times you’ve had with family and friends, and maybe that will make you feel better.

  • Keep yourself busy. If your energy is focused outward you’ll be less likely to obsess about things you can’t change.
  • Do not isolate yourself in your room.
  • Try to smile, and laugh at jokes that you think are funny. Don’t put on a fake smile all the time, but just smile when you feel like it.
  • Talk to a trustworthy friend about how you’re feeling. It makes you feel a lot better.
  • Write down your thoughts on a piece of paper. Just keep writing, then when you’re done, shred the paper and get rid of it!

  • Sneak a candy into a friends pocket – let them wonder how it got there.
  • Learn to do something new, like how to make a tree ornament or do HTML code.
  • Have dessert for dinner, and dinner for dessert.
  • Read a book that makes you laugh, then listen to an uplifting song as loud as you like it.
  • Make a tent of blankets, cover the floor in pillows, and curl up with some hot chocolate and a good book, or someone you love.
  • Rearrange your room.
  • Teach someone to do something you do well – fly a kite, swim a mile. They will appreciate it.
  • Give someone a really great gift, no matter what the occasion. Watch their reaction, and you’ll get a high.
  • Don’t forget that you’re special. Remember that no matter what anyone says, you know who you are and you like yourself that way.
  • Don’t listen to people who want to get you down.
  • Smile nicely at a mean person.
  • Study hard, get an A.
  • It doesn’t matter who your trustworthy friend is; it could be your mother, father, or your best friend. Whoever you feel comfortable with.

WARNING: People may think you are fake and shallow. Ignore them and express yourself.

  • Suicide is NEVER the answer, no matter what the problem is. Think things through, and you’re bound to find a way to make things right.

  • Spend time with God.
  • Pray, meditate
  • Think on things that are good Smile
  • Spend time reading the Bible.
  • Remember that your life is in God’s hands and He takes great care of His people.

“Smile awhile and give your face a rest….”
