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.
Here’s this week’s edition of Midweek Pre-Fourth of July Mirth … so let’s smile a little!
The Fourth of July weekend was approaching, and Miss Pelham, the nursery school teacher, took the opportunity to tell her class about patriotism. “We live in a great country,” she announced. “One of the things we should be happy about is, in this country we are all free.”
Trevor, who was a little boy in her class, came walking up to her from the back of the room. He stood with his hands on his hips and said loudly, “I’m not free. I’m four!”
… And now for the bonus …
Sooner Than Later
A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor’s office. “Is it true,” she wanted to know, “the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?”
“Yes, I’m afraid so,” the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, “I’m wondering, then, just how serious my condition is because this prescription is marked ‘No Refills’!”
… And just so we don’t forget to laugh at the virus …
Have we tried unplugging 2020, waiting 30 seconds, and plugging it back in?
Due to the quarantine, I’ll only be telling inside jokes.
Sometimes I wonder if all this is happening because I was told to forward that e-mail to 25 people — and didn’t.
If you had told me back in the 1970s the people sitting in church were “spaced out,” I would have worried.

Every week I read your midweek mirth to my walking group. We laugh and laugh. Laughing is like jogging on the inside.
That is so cool. I like that … Laughter is like jogging on the inside. Thanks!
