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 Mirth … so let’s smile a little!
A woman went to a memorial service for World War One at St. Mary’s Church, Hemel Hempstead. The vicar said, “We will now give the peace.” This is where we shake each other’s hands and say, “Peace be with you.”
The elderly lady next to her, who was not a churchgoer and was hard of hearing, repeated after each shake of the hand what she thought was being said: “Pleased to meet you!”
… and now for the bonus …
A man pacing back and forth glanced at his watch and yelled upstairs to his wife, “Honey, are you ready yet?”
Shouting back, the woman replies, “For crying out loud, Dewey, I’ve been telling you for the last half hour … I’ll be ready in a minute!”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it. — Lao Tsu
