Humor 

Our mouths were filled with laughter,
 our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
"The Lord has done great things for them."
Psalm 126:2

I'm grateful for people who bring laughter to our lives.  Former New York Yankee baseball great Yogi Berra's wry humor has left us laughing for decades.  Consider these "Yogi-isms:"

·          "Never answer an anonymous letter."

·          "I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four."

·          "When you come to a fork in the road…take it."  …and

·          "I really didn't say everything I said."

Laughter's a great gift.  And doctors are finding the Bible is right: laughter truly is good medicine.  Not only are there emotional benefits to laughing, but there are physical benefits as well.  Bill Cosby said, "If you can find humor in anything, you can survive it."  He's right.  Humor can actually be an agent of healing. So look for opportunities to laugh, and don't take things to seriously.  God has a sense of humor, and so should we.

"From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down, I convulsed with laughter.  Someday I intend on reading it."- Groucho Marx  (1890-1977)
