Midweek Mothers Day 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.

It’s time for some pre-Mothers Day Midweek Mirth with a bonus  to help us get through this a virus shutdown, so let’s smile a little!

A Word About Mom

When a son graduated from high school, he had to give a speech. He began by reading from his prepared text: “I want to talk about my mother and the wonderful influence she has had on my life. She is a shining example of parenthood, and I love her more than words could ever do justice.” At this point he seemed to struggle for words. After a pause, he looked up with a sly grin and said, “Sorry, but it’s really hard to read my mother’s handwriting.”

And now for the bonus …

Two Views of Stay-At-Home Orders

The introvert view:  Finally, introverts experience a world that is suited for us. All events canceled, we don’t even have to go through the trouble of canceling at the last minute. No one is making random small talk or physical contact. Everybody minding their own business.

The extrovert view:  Once this is all over with, I’m hugging everybody. Get ready for long, awkward hugs.

The takeaway:  Introverts, check in on your extrovert friends. They have no idea how this works.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: An optimist laughs to forget; a pessimist forgets to laugh. — Tom Nansbury

  1. A glorious perplexity,
    conundrums up the Great Yazoo
    have surely put a hex on me,
    and I don’t know what to do.
    If you play it backwards,
    you’ll hear that Paul Is Dead,
    but is that harbinger towards
    the world that lies ahead?
    I am scared to try the thing,
    for what about causality?
    Could my actions somehow bring
    this curse to dread reality?
    And if played forward, immediate-after,
    will Paul rise, to cheers and laughter?

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