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.” ―
