Laughter is a Gift

Laughter is a wonderful gift.

A small child’s giggle can put a smile on your face.

A deep, stomach-contracting laugh can make your sides ache and bring you to tears – yet make you feel so good, you forget the day’s troubles.

Laughter can contribute to your mental and physical health. It can bring you closer to those around you. And it can just plain make the world a brighter place.

I choose friends who have a sense of humor. They not only laugh with me, they also help me to laugh at myself. It’s good not to take ourselves or life too seriously.

Yep, God sure knew what He was doing when He shared laughter with us.

Have you ever wondered what it will be like to hear Him laugh?

Will it be a Santa Claus-like belly ho-ho kind of laugh?
Will it sound musical? Magical?

My guess is that it will sound warmly familiar—yet like nothing we’ve every heard before. And it will fill us with such joy, we won’t be able to help but join in.

This week—laugh.
As much as you can.
And don’t forget. God has a sense of humor, too.


To get started, read the funny bloopers that were either published in church bulletins or announced in church services. I can almost guarantee that they’ll put a smile on your face.

The Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.

The sermon this morning: "Jesus Walks on the Water." The sermon tonight: "Searching for Jesus."

Don't let worry kill you off - let the Church help.

The pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday.

  1. From the days I used to work in a church and ran across these kinds of bloopers until now, I still love reading them! Thanks, Dawn, for the LOL!
