31 Days: Day 10 - Illustration Friday: Contagious

Oh what a blessing to catch contagious cheerfulness...or better yet, to be a carrier!!
______________________________


I had a lot of fun with Illustration Friday's topic this week - "Contagious". I wanted to do something along the line of "contagious joy" or "contagious happiness", then I thought of this verse from Proverbs 17:22 ("A cheerful heart is good medicine...") and then the "contagious cheerfulness" concept came together in my mind pretty quickly after that...


I was so glad to be able to use a verse from Proverbs as the inspiration because I am on Day 10 of my personal challenge to read one of the 31 Chapters of Proverbs each day for 31 days and post about my favorite verse(s) daily here on the blog. So far I've done pretty well...I have at least managed to post everyday (which is a miracle for me) even though some of the posts have been a little short on content. But hey - at least they each have the main attraction - the Proverbs...


So, for Proverbs 10, here is the verse selection that jumped out to me - simple but powerful...

"The hopes of the godly result in happiness, but the expectations of the wicked come to nothing."
Proverbs 10:28

I wanted to leave a comment on your "branch and vine" illustration also (I couldn't on my computer) Your grapes and vine were so beautiful. I could see that on the cover of our church bulletin. Very nice! Thanks for your comments on my stuff the last couple of weeks. Blessings, peace and joy!
