We have to have it! We really want to laugh. Sometimes we don’t think about how much we need it until we are right smack dab in the middle of laughing like a hyena.
Laughing until my side hurts while rubbing my face and blotting my watering eyes is something I long for at times. It kind of sounds painful, but if you have ever really experienced this —it truly is one of the great JOYS of life.
Tonight, I got to spend some time with the youth from our church. We shared stories, ate some great food and talked about why we should be HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY! (I wore my Phil Robertson shirt!)
We should be happy—we are GOD’S PEOPLE! We should look “CRAZY” HAPPY to this world. We have something this world doesn’t have, something this world needs: JESUS! That is what makes us HAPPY– HAPPY– HAPPY!
My face still hurts a little from the constant LOL’n and smiling from ear to ear. I love that we all had so much fun with each other. That is the way GOD wants it to be–He wants us to be JOYFUL, happy, while appreciating and even relishing in each other’s company. It’s a great feeling …that feeling of JOY…laughing is powerful! It makes you feel closer to God…
Never EVER underestimate the POWER of Laughter!
