THE MERRY HEART

Is there any quality more spontaneously appreciated than the quality of joy? The warm smile of a friend, the contagious laughter of a child, a cheerful whistle, or a glad song can quickly lighten the atmosphere of thought. We read in Proverbs (17:22), "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine."

That healing often follows closely on the heels of joy is indicated in numerous testimonies published in the authorized Christian Science periodicals. Singing hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal, for instance, at times when the shadow of sickness, fear, or discouragement has darkened the home has quickly resulted in the banishment of these errors as naturally as turning on an electric light dispels the darkness of a room. Likewise, a Christian Science practitioner's confident response to a summons for help, "What a joyous opportunity for healing!" has often been the beginning of that healing.
