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 get in the Christmas spirit and smile a little!
Trying to be creative at disguising obvious gifts when wrapping Christmas presents, a mom bought a video for her four year old son one year, and not wanting him to guess what it was, put it in a cereal box, wrapped it and put it under the tree. Christmas morning the boy tore off the paper, let out a whoop and exclaimed, “Look, Mom, I got breakfast!”
And now for the bonus …
Alfie had been listening to his sister practicing her singing. “Sis,” he said, “I wish you’d sing Christmas carols.”
She looked at him and said, “That’s nice of you, Alfie. But why?”
“Then I’d only have to hear you once a year!”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: May you never be too grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve.
I searched the skies on Christmas Eve,
and the sandbags were awash in tinsel.
There were cookie crumbs upon my sleeve
as I held my Stinger missile.
The Sandinistas knew no God,
and knew no Christmas truce,
but President Ronnie, although flawed
had given us the tools to use
to level up the playing field,
and to take freedom’s chance;
at any rate, not to yield
to the Communist advance.
That night, though, wished it were summer
for downing Santa would be a bummer.
