Christians can have fun...really, they can!!!

Proverbs 17:22 (NKJV)
A merry heart does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit dries the bones.

Don't you think we can just be a little too serious sometimes? I truly believe that God has a sense of humor. Here's why....I don't like going to the grocery all. It is probably one of my least favorite "chores". After my Dad passed away, it seemed months before I was happy. All of a sudden one day, I felt almost joyful. I can even remember what I was wearing, and especially where I was standing....smack dab in the middle of Food Lion!!! Now...I know that God restored my joy after the initial grieving for my Daddy...but in the middle of Food Lion?!?!?!? was funny to me!!!!
Plus, I think that Christians get a lot of negative press, don't you? A lot of people think that we are just old fuddy-duddies who never smile, or never have fun. It's just that our idea of fun isn't the same as that of the world.
So...that being said...this is gonna be a, a lot...different than usual.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!!! Leave me a comment...let me know if you actually caught yourself with a smile on your face...or...leave me one of your favorite little Bible funnies!!!

What is the best way to get to Paradise?
Turn right and go straight.

Today I smiled, and all at once things didn't look so bad.
Today I shared with someone else, a little bit of hope I had.
Today I sang a little song, and felt my heart grow light.
I walked a happy little mile, with not a cloud in sight.
Today I worked with what I had, and longed for nothing more,
And what had seemed like only weeds,were flowers at my door.
Today I loved a little more, and complained a little less.
And in the giving of myself,I forgot my weariness.
