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!
True Story from Matt Felts (of the Lesters):
So here’s one for the book. We were in Iowa last night and after the concert nothing was open to eat so we stopped at a gas station to grange. While looking at my microwaveable options the young girl behind the counter asked me (in a frantic voice) to come in the back room to help her. I went back and had to help load the syrup for the fountain drinks. I went back out to hear her once again ask for help. OK, this time it wasn’t really asking. I was ordered. Once in the back room she left “to ring up customers” since she felt I “had this.” Suddenly I’m working for the quick mart. LOL!
The up-side was that when I “went on break” and finally checked out, she gave me the employee discount on my drink. No joke! LOL!”
… and now for the bonus …
A man stopped to help a woman with a flat tire on her car. As he started to raise the jack, she said to him, “Please do it as quietly as you can. My husband is asleep in the back seat.”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Look up, laugh loud, talk big, keep the color in your cheek and the fire in your eye, adorn your person, maintain your health, your beauty and your animal spirits. – William Hazlitt
