Midweek Mirth

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!

Think About It

When’s the best time to plant a tree?

Fifteen years ago.

When’s the second-best time?

Today.

… and now for the bonus, appropriate for the back to school season.

School Daze

Little Jimmy had reached school age. His mom worked hard to make him enthusiastic about the idea. She bought him lots of new clothes, told him of the new friends he’d meet, and so on. The first day of school, he eagerly set off. When he came back home he had a lot of glowing reports about school!

Next morning his mom woke him up saying, “Jimmy, it’s time to get ready for school.”

Jimmy stared at her incredulously and said, “What? Again?”

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: A little laughter, a little song,

A little teardrop

When things go wrong,

A little calm

And a little strife,

A little loving —

And that is life.
