Joy or Laughter?

Tears of JoyDo you prefer laughter or joy? Or are they the same thing? Or does one produce the other?

My post on Inscribe Writers Online shares a couple times of laughter in my life as I pray that God will continue to fill my heart with His joy.

It is called Humour in my Life.

InScribeFall ConferenceDo you like to tell humorous stories? Are you artistic? The Inscribe Fall Conference is coming up in September and I would love for you to join me there. This year it is in Wetaskawin, Alberta, just outside of Calgary. Check it out at the Fall Conference page of Inscribe.

As Autumn is fast approaching, remember in the change of season to plan creativity time into your life. Creativity can take any form from writing, drawing, playing an instrument, acting, painting, colouring, sewing or knitting, designing, crafting, photography, or any kind of activity that helps you create. Creativity helps you better process life, heal from the hard times in life, and develops God’s creative character in your daily life. Invest in your relationship with God and in caring for yourself by finding your creative streak.

That first portion was selected as the official Canadian National Anthem in 1980.
