Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.
(Bill Cosby)

I truly believe that God has a sense of humor.  He loves it when we laugh and when we’re happy.  His original plan for man was to enjoy life to the fullest. He created a perfect world with no problems – who wouldn’t be happy?

My mom was a great laugher and I think I have inherited that trait.  She laughed at everything, even when it wasn’t particularly funny.  Many people in the world today might think she wasn’t totally “all there,” but I think she was more “there” than most people. She had the ability to take a tough situation and turn it around with her happy face.

Today it isn’t uncommon to walk into a store and ask for service, only to be greeted by a grumpy person behind the counter.  Even in the service industry, there is a lack of joy.  What has happened to the giggles, chuckles and guffaws?  Has it become  politically incorrect to laugh?  I hope not.

Laughter is the one contagious thing  we shouldn’t be afraid to share with someone else.  When we start to show our joy in this special way, it can soon bring a smile to someone’s eyes and eventually they have caught the happiness disease youre spreading.  Laughing makes our face hurt sometimes; it gives us a whole different body language; it lightens up a room; it takes away some of the pain you may be feeling deep inside.

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22

So now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to have a good belly laugh before my bones get crushed!



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
