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!
Express Line Vindication
A woman was in the six-item express lane at the store quietly fuming. Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of her had slipped into the checkout line pushing a cart piled high with groceries. Imagine the first woman’s delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked, “So which six items would you like to buy?”
And now for the bonus while college days are still new …
A woman used to live near a major university. Every fall, the new flock of kids attending college always included some who needed a little help with everyday chores due to never having really done any while they lived at home … things like doing the laundry or purchasing groceries.
One day at the grocery store, she was in the dairy aisle, picking out some eggs. As she usually did, she opened the carton to check them over for damage before putting them in her cart. That’s when she noticed the young man beside her mimicking her every move. When he saw she had noticed him, he leaned toward her and whispered conspiratorially, “What are we looking for?”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: If you have just a little fun today, it’s a sign that maybe the future will hold even more fun for you. Fun isn’t just fun – it’s hope. -– Linda Richman
