Humor And Sayings About It

Claudia Miclaus Nov 17, 2018
Healthy and radiating optimism, humor is said to be a lifesaver. Read on for some quotes and sayings.
Humor and a joyful nature are good moods to be around. Isn't it more pleasant to spend time in such company? There is a lot to be said about humor, yes it is good for your heart, for your nervous system; it does induce positivism and optimism, thus bringing you good health.
We like being around people like that, however when we went deep into it, in most cases, we realized that this sense of humor is just a mask that people hide behind. We prefer this mask to other masks but when you get close to someone, close enough to know them, the masks fall and the real person might not be as funny and witty as you might have believed.
This inner joy issue is much deeper than a mere sense of humor. To have a fountain full of joy/good humor and need to know where to fuel it from. When you see the world falling apart- the economy, the environment - you realize that it is not the world to fill your joy. You need to fill it from God. You will find God if you search for Him with all your heart!
