Almost Normal 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.

We’ll start this week’s edition of Midweek Mirth by remembering a time not so very long ago in what seems like a different galaxy when teachers (real teachers) ruled the classroom. Here it is … so let’s smile a little!

Our Country
The teacher was explaining to her second grade class the significance of Memorial Day, and they were preparing some songs and stories to put on a little show for their parents. At one point the teacher pointed to the American flag and asked, “Does anyone know what flag this is?”

A little girl called out, “That’s the flag of our country!”

“Very good!” the teacher said. “And what is the name of our country?”

Confidently, the girl said, “Tis of thee.”

And now for the churchy-virus bonus …

Church Signs

Services canceled. God is making house calls.

Shout Hosanna! But first, step back six feet

Cleanse your hands” (James 4:8).

Wash yourselves and be clean! (Isaiah 1:16).

The Church isn’t closed, it’s deployed!

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine. — Lord Byron
