What a wonderful depiction of Christ! It is not too often that you see him pictured in such a full blown smile. It made me smile just looking at him. Great reminder about joy. No one will believe we love Christ if we walk around sour. Thanks Micki!

I LOVE the laughing Jesus pictures. Too bad they are so hard to find!

I should find one for my son's bedroom. What a great image of Christ to grow up with.

Stephanie - Thought you'd appreciate this quote...."From silly devotions and sour-faced saints, good Lord, deliver us!" -- St. Teresa of Avila

Ginny - Sounds like a good idea. He could learn about JOY with that face of Jesus....then the message of joy (Jesus, Others, Yourself)

This is such a great reminder of how to be Christ-like by sharing the joy that he brings. I've been searching the internet for a place to buy this picture, but am having a hard time. What is the name of the artist?

Would also love to buy a larger print of this picture for my father! Any ideas?

I think this holy card was made from a section of a huge painting. It is a glossy holy card and the writing is very blurred....can't make out any name. I have never seen it available as a hanging picture so can't offer much help.
