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!

Words of Wisdom

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

And now for the bonus …

The New Grandmother

As a new grandmother, a woman was very protective of her daughter Meredith’s baby girl. One cool afternoon she dropped by to see her grandchild. Meredith and a friend had taken little Allison for a walk in her stroller and were just coming up the street. As soon as they reached grandma, she bent down to admire Allison and, in her fussiest voice, remarked, “Your little head is cold. You should have a hat on.”

Her daughter looked knowingly at her friend and said, “You owe me ten bucks.”

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Even if you cannot change all the people around you, you can change the people you choose to be around. Life is too short to waste your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved.” ― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

  1. If laughter has to have a reason
    it isn’t worth it’s bitter salt,
    for humour in its love is season
    to turn sorrow to a fault.
    No one here will emerge
    from this life alive and free
    save those who exit to the verge
    of proffered divinity.
    The Lamb that took the lethal Cross
    had to laugh while He cried
    because that which was seen as loss
    was transfigured as He died.
    Did He smile at their expressions’ proof
    that His return was Heaven’s truth?

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
