Laughter Thanks

"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me...
...to provide for those who grieve in Zion--
to bestow upon them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of GLADNESS
INSTEAD of mourning..."
Isaiah 61

Thank you Lord...

for LAUGHTER!
laughter to melt cold hearts
laughter to diffuse stress
laughter to cheer up the brokenhearted
laughter to spice love for a lifetime
laughter to remind yourself you are human
laughter when tiny hands get gooped up with some forbidden delight
laughter when baby girl says "a-da-da" and smiles at papa
laughter, gut splitting and side hurting that only comes from the comfort of real friends
laughter instead of anger
laughter instead of sadness
laughter instead of madness or despair
laughter in the midst of mess
laughter for survival
laughter to remind us
nothing is
that important
that we cannot stop
and find humor
for we are Yours
the sheep of your pasture
You hold us in the palm of Your hand
and are bringing us forever Home
to the land
of no more tears...

(#51-65)
