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.
It’s time for some Midweek Mirth so let’s smile a little!
A father was reading the Bible to his little girl before bedtime one night. He was on the first chapter of Genesis. “In the beginning, the world was without form and void,” the father read. “And God said, ‘Let there be light.’ …And God separated the light from the dark.”
“I know what happens next!” the little girl exclaimed excitedly.
“What happens next?” asked the father, smiling.
The girl replied, “God did two loads of laundry.”
And now, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here’s the bonus …
A fellow decided to buy his girl some perfume for Valentine’s Day, so he went to the cosmetic counter in his girl’s favorite store. The prices were horrific! No matter what the sales lady showed him, even the tiniest bottles were beyond his budget. Finally, he asked her: “Can you show me something really cheap?”
She handed him a mirror.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone. — Anthony Burgess
This business of St. Valentine
will scarce evoke a laugh,
for it is like a buried mine
placed in a husband’s path.
Waves of nausea and of fear
roar in at the gifting thought.
I’d get her what she got last year
if I remembered what I bought.
But that plan may not be the best
when the wife has total recall,
and when you’re pushed from love’s sweet nest
it’s a long, long way to fall,
then resign oneself, with an “Ouch!”
to another night spent on the couch.
Hearts ans flowers.
