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.

When the power mower broke and wouldn’t run, a wife kept hinting to her husband he ought to get it fixed, but somehow the message never sank in. Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.

When you finish cutting the grass,” he said, “you might as well sweep the sidewalks.”
The doctors say he will probably live, but it will be quite awhile before the casts come off.
