October 23–Lighten Up!

A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.

Proverbs 15:13

I know there is heartache in our world, in our lives and in each one of us personally — to some extent. That is what comes from the truth that we are living in a broken and imperfect world — that is what comes from living as a broken and imperfect person.

But God is with us. God loves us. God has conquered brokenness and imperfection. God has conquered sin and death. And God did it through His love! God did it through His Beautiful, Holy, Whole and Perfect Son Jesus Christ our Lord!


We have much to be happy about! We have much to give thanks for! We have much to be joyful about…much to sing and dance about! So, let’s allow that happiness…that thankfulness…that joy…(and even some singing and dancing!) to show through in our lives! To shine through on our faces!  This will lift much of our own heartache…and some of the world’s too!


In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
