One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is we don’t know how to have fun or have a sense of humor. Trust me, if the Big Guy can have a sense of humor when it comes to dealing with us mere mortals, so can we.
The difference for Christians is we don’t have to debase ourselves or others to generate a smile. Laughter at life or ourselves is a gift from God.
And so, as part of the blog revamp, I’ll be including a category called “Midweek Mirth”. Posts in this category will include cartoons, jokes and — well — just some good, clean levity. The purpose is to make you smile at the sometimes absurd way we look at life.
As an example, before we get too far into the new year, here are some New Year’s Observations
A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.
My New Year’s resolution is 1080p.
I have only one resolution: to rediscover the difference between wants and needs. May I have all I need and want all I have. Happy New Year!
May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.
New Year’s is just a holiday created by calendar companies who don’t want you reusing last year’s calendar.
And as a bonus, here’s an example of being Indispensable
One Sunday morning on her way to church with a baby and three-year old in the car, a woman pulled over to the shoulder of the road with a flat tire. She had no idea of how to change it, but fortunately a gentleman pulled up and offered his assistance. When he completed the task, she gave him a rag to wipe his hands, and, noting he was wearing a suit, said, “I hope I haven’t made you late for church.”
“Don’t worry,” the man replied. “They won’t start without me. I’m the minister.”
Let me know what you think!
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Believe everything happens for a reason.
