One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is non-Christians think 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.

So, let’s smile a little!


One day, a husband announced to the family he was going to fast and pray.

Ginny, the five-year-old, had recently learned fasting meant not eating. “No!” she shouted. “You can’t fast! You’ll die!”

Her dad carefully explained many men and women fasted in Bible times.

Ginny paused a moment. Then, with a flash of insight and a note of warning, she proved her point: “And they’re all dead!” she said.

And now for the bonus …

    Love it! In my world/current ‘perspective’ there is such a thin, thin line between having the humility to admit to others and ourselves, our very human tendencies, & the courage to laugh with ourselves /others at our own foibles, ball while NOT limiting our potential for good through negative self-talk – sigh – never ending ‘boundary line’ for myself – and, never sure, quite where I’m at, except at the end of the day, when I go to bed, and before drifting off, check in to see how long the list is of, “thank you for this moment, and that moment, and ooh! ooh! wait! This one too!” – along with – “Thank goodness that challenge wasn’t as bad as I feared it might be!”

    • Yeah, sometimes we take ourselves too seriously. Hope your world/current “perspective” is positive and blessed.

        Deuteronomy 28:12 (paraphrased of what my mind recalled, tonight, as I connected with my space, and then looked up to find exact chapter/verse! 🙂 ) “[the heavens will open] ‘to send rain to your land in season and to bless the work of your hands” – – We are getting rain – have gotten snow, hail, sleet, rain in abundance this year – but, for me, now that twister chaos season has, for most part passed, I hear the storm and my heart soars – ‘for the heavens shall open” – and parched ground (souls) shall be blessed – :).
        Long time since I had the time to just gaze upon my surroundings, be reminded of something, look it up, figure I didn’t get it ‘too wrong’ in my memory – and go back to feeling blessed – while the rain falls to feed the ground that supports me – – 🙂
