a good laugh

 Every so often, its really good to have some hefty  laughing in our day.  Prov 15:13 says that a joyful heart makes a cheerful face & Prov 17:22 says that a joyful heart is good medicine.  Some good “medicine” I take every so often is this:  Don’t take myself so seriously.  It really helps me to get a good laugh from some of the crazy things I’ve done.  So here are a few things I’ve done that make me laugh & maybe you’ll get some smiles from these as well 🙂

  • I figured out that if you try to “toast” whipped cream, it melts into cream “soup” – yes, I learned this from actually trying it.  Details upon request ,)
  • last week I pulled up to a couple walking by my friend’s house to say hello, thinking they were my friends, only to discover that they were total strangers.  My kids were mortified & I TOTALLY laughed at myself 🙂
  • when I was recently preaching in Cambodia, I tried to copy my translator with something he said & made a massive blunder – the crowd & I getting a great laugh together when I figured out what I had said by mistake 🙂
  • I’m always laughing at myself whenever I try something new with sports – my lack of coordination is a good laugh for anyone who watches
  • bowling:  I don’t know what it is about bowling, but whenever I bowl, I get the laughs so hard it becomes virtually impossible to bowl.  This was true even before I was married & changed my last name ,)

What are some things that make you laugh???
