Have you ever laughed so hard that your cheeks felt like they might fall off, and you nearly lost your voice because the laughs were deep and with extended bellows?
“You need not take everything so seriously,” I still recall a childhood babysitter saying to me 22 years ago.
Then, tonight, during a moment of fun fellowship with some people from Church, I absolutely didn’t take it seriously!
We laughed, and we laughed about a huge misunderstanding!
If you’ve seen what the iPhone can do with autocorrect, imagine that, but in a Group Text situation!
I made a reference to something from the movie “Anchorman” that only one other person in the Group Text conversation understood.
Everyone else didn’t. Tonight, that conversation was read aloud, and hearing it for the first time was pure joy. The best part was that after the line I texted from “Anchorman,” someone texted back, “Amen.” We didn’t catch the hilarity of the moment until we heard it aloud!
Instead of being uncomfortable, we all shared in the joy of the laughter, and not one was offended. Then, we laughed some more.
Ecclesiastes 3:4 (NIV)
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance
Psalm 126:2 (NIV)
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
‘The Lord has done great things for them.’
