Thank you to Holly for the opportunity to write and reflect and share my spiritual journey. Today our topic is laughter. Join us here!
I remember when my dad was in the ICU at the hospital, my sister and I started playing around with his cell phone. Changing ring tones. Taking silly selfies (before anyone knew what selfies were)...and the giggles started. My sister is someone with whom I've shared some of the best moments of laughter.
Laughter is healing. I believe that laughter signals that no matter how bad things are, everything will be okay. I'm blessed to share my life with friends who are hilarious! Friends who know when I need them to crack a joke, or point out the irony in a situation.
Laughter is holy. As Anne Lamott says, "Laughter is carbonated holiness." I feel closer to God when I laugh. I don't understand it and I can't really explain it, but it's a feeling of love that surrounds me. I believe that God wants us to be joy-filled and to experience the giggles as much as we can.
Here's some laughter inspiration for you! I hope you enjoy it...
