Laugh Out Loud

Laughing is Therapy...

You know what they say…”someday you’re going to laugh about this…” 
National Humor Month…only a few days left…just saw this…I don’t know about you, but I could use a good laugh today.  So let’s do this, change our mood. 
Dr. Oz has said that laughter triggers a rush of those good endorphins that can help you overcome a down mood…the same thing you get from a good workout. 
I’d love to know the funniest thing that happened to you this week.  We'll all have a little laughing therapy session just reading each others stories and comments.
It’s been a long week…my kids and I are all sick…at night it sounds like an orchestra of coughing in my house.  Complaining to my mom on the phone last night about it and so we just started telling stories…
This is a classic:
My mother  was grocery shopping and bumped her shopping cart into a stack of glass bottles of cooking oil - they all fell and broke all over the floor - she was unable to get up from the floor because all the oil made the floor slick.  So a store employee came by and poured kitty litter to help her finally get some traction so she could stand up.  So, covered with oil, stuck with kitty litter, she walked out of the store crying, and laughing.  
You either cry or laugh at life…I choose laughter.

The Rescue

I’m a firm believer that God doesn’t cause bad things to happen to teach you a lesson.  From my study of the bible I have resolved that bad things happen because people make bad decisions, this is a fallen world we live in, but God is there to get us through.

I’m learning a lot about how to resolve the questions if God is so loving, why is life so hard, by reading through Laura Story’s devotional “What if your Blessings Come through Raindrops.”

She writes, “Many of us believe wrongly that we’re unworthy of God’s love.”  I think it’s because of mistakes we’ve made, or bad things that happen and we think God’s doing it to punish us. 

Laura writes, “there is nothing we could offer to earn the blessing of salvation.  Yet we were in such desperate need of redemption that God being rich in mercy, showed us His love by sending Jesus to our rescue.”

That’s the blessing.  The rescue.

“We’re not only saved by grace, but the bible says we’re sustained by grace.” –Bill Hybels
