Pinterest Party
Pinterest can generate a lot of traffic to your site fast, it has become a key in self promotion and showing off your products.  By having others repin and "like" your pins it moves yours towards that top bracket (where we all want to be!)

For this to be successful there will be some rules and instructions. Please note we are using InLinkz for our pins to promote, click, like and repin, makes it sooo much easier :)

Happiness on Laughter Is The Best Medicine

Changing Laughter is the Best Medicine slightly.  I have a devotional book that I use every morning and one of the themes is Joy vs Happiness.  While many think of them as one there is a difference.  Christians can be joyful even when things are not going well, but happiness is more related to human emotion.  While these moments  are more of earthly things they are still blessings from God and should never be taken for granted.  God did not design us to be in a constant state of misery.

So instead of just looking for things that will make us start our week laughing, I am going to include anything that can start it out with a smile and positive outlook.  

Good and blessed Sunday morning.  

 Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones
