    Yes – we need to choose to have that “cheerful spirit”. Counting the Gifts certainly has led me to seek that out.

    Both a tonic and a medicine – prevention and healing – love this, Janet, and I love His Word.

      God has given you a cheerful heart, Shirley… and I’m trusting Him to guard it and to make it both tonic and medicine for you and for those who know you.

      Ruth Ann, I think the cheerful hearts He gives are more like “joy” than “happy” — the confidence we can have in His love and care makes a huge difference no matter our circumstances. It’s a gift indeed!
