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!


The new office computer system was down as much as it was working. Cathy decided to stay late one evening to catch up on the work that had accumulated. On her way home, a police officer stopped her for speeding.

“What a perfect end to an awful day!” she exclaimed. “Our computer is up, then down — up, then down. I stay late to catch up, and now this!”

The officer was unaffected by Cathy’s griping and he went to his car to prepare a citation.

After what seemed an eternity, he returned with her license and registration. As he handed them to her, he smiled and said, “Our computer is down.”

And now for the bonus …

  1. When David met Goliath,
    he said, “Dude, you’re tall!”
    To which the man-beast replyeth,
    “And I’ll be your downfall.”
    David grinned and gave a wink,
    “It’s I who’ll rock YOUR world,”
    and then he wound up the sling
    from which fatal stone was hurled.
    Excedrin Headache Number One,
    that’s what the boastful giant got,
    As he lay dying in the sun,
    one wonders if he thought:
    “Well, better killed by this young clown;
    just hurt, I’d never live it down.”
