And a Lot Cheaper

  People spend huge amounts of money for medicines. Many times these things actually are useful but almost as often we look for "quick fix" pills that will recover health overnight. It would be nice if such medicines could be found but usually they produce so many side effects you have a hard time deciding which is worse; the illness or the medicine.

  Proverbs 17: 22, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones." We all have experienced it. When we are truly happy even our illnesses do not seem to be as bad. How much illness is prevented by being of a merry heart? It may seem that it is difficult to be merry while sick. And it is. But having that attitude can probably do more for you than so many over-the-counter "miracle" drugs.

  We should try that more this year. It sure is a cheaper way to go and better for you overall.
