When is the last time you laughed…I mean really laughed? Remember as a child when you used to get so tickled at something that you laughed until you cried (or almost wet your pants!)? Well, those days do not have to be gone. Recently, my family and I purchased some Christian comedian videos and sat down one night to watch several of them. You talk about funny (and clean). This made for such a refreshing and fun family time.
I know in our house we have several jokesters, so we laugh quite a bit. There is such a need for true, heartfelt “belly” laughter that just takes over your body and restores our hearts to a good place. Life keeps us all busy and we so often miss things that should bring us joy. I think laughter is one of those things. There are two commercials that literally make me laugh out loud, and my family gets a kick out of watching me get so tickled, even though I have seen them a dozen times.
This past weekend, we had a women’s event at church, and we watched a female Christian comedian tell her life stories and her testimony. She was one of the funniest women I have ever heard, and it was such a blessing to be in a room full of women enjoying fellowship and “true laughter.” Looking back at our lives from childhood, there are some pretty amazingly funny stories we all have, but some people are just gifted to share those.
Whether it is your family or a group of friends gathered together, laughter matters. Don’t forget to take time with those you love and find the blessing of “true laughter.” God has given us so much to find joy and laughter in. Don’t let those moments get away. Rent a Christian comedian video and see what a difference it makes to have an hour of really good, clean and refreshing laughter. Count your blessings daily, and give thanks for the times you are given to laugh together.
