Sunday I took these pictures of a young lady at our meeting that has a "merry heart"! Her countenance reflects the joy that is in her heart. It is such a pleasure to be around her as she brings joy to those she is with.
Because Moriah had made the hat for Rachel, I snapped a picture for Moriah to keep. But after loading these pictures on my computer, I thought about the genuine happiness displayed on her face. It remind me of a few scriptures.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance. Proverbs 15:13a
...But he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Proverbs 15:15b
Oh, that we would remember that the world (and Christians), is looking on our countenance...which should reflect the Joy of the Lord.
