One of my favorite things about God is His sense of humor- it’s a beaut! All you have to do is take a look around your life and see all the funny creatures, people and situations with which we are surrounded. I imagine my favorite pastime in heaven will be hanging out with Jesus and some of my most beloved ones having a good chuckle, some hearty giggles- all of us laughing till we cry, pee our pants, and ache from the sheer pleasure of laughing together. I am in full agreement with Jane Austen’s fictional character Elizabeth Bennet when she said. “I do so love to laugh.”
I’ve been doing some wistful thinking lately- you know the kind were reality is light years away but somewhere inside is a little part of yourself that wants the wistful thought to be a reality, if not an absolute. Just the other day, shortly after having a paragraph of these thoughts, God used a phone call to make it abundantly, tragically apparent how silly these thoughts were and for a moment reality left me bereft, but then I saw the comedy of error. I laughed and thanked God that He chose a gentle loving way to show me how comically out of touch my thinking was. I love that God made me laugh instead of cry. God is good all the time…all the time God is good.
