Ho, Ho, Ho
March 28, 2017
To quote Uncle Albert, “I love to laugh”. The other day, on my way through airport security my carry-on luggage was flagged for further inspection. The suspicious article that showed up on the x-ray was my shaving mug and soap. When I was trying to explain what it was, and that it wasn’t a liquid or gel, I noticed the lady who was questioning me kept glancing at the mug and at my mug.
Trying to ease the situation I said, “You’re probably wondering why I need shaving cream.” To which she replied without missing a beat “Oh, I know why you need it, I just don’t know why you have it.” And then she laughed and I knew all was good.
The Bible tells us that laughter is a good medicine. And the great thing is, that unlike most medicine, it’s cheap, you don’t need a prescription and there are no side effects. And laughter is readily available, but only if you want it. And if you feel that you’ve lost your laughter then the promise of Job 8:21 is for you, “He (God) will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.” Maybe not today and maybe not tomorrow, but He will fill your mouth with laugher again.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
