I think God must have a wonderful sense of humor. I hope you don’t think me sacrilegious when I say that. Because I say it with much respect. I happen to think that a sense of humor is one of the things needed most to survive this world with the mind somewhat intact! If we can not laugh at the funny, the absurd, the quirkiness of life…we miss a whole lot of fun!
Just look at some of the creatures He created…they are hilarious!
“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouting.” Job 8:21
Well, in my life, there are always funny coincidences. And, sometimes, I can just imagine He is laughing with me when I ‘get it’! Do you remember that old joke….”Wanna know how to make God laugh?”…..”Just tell Him YOUR plans!” I’m sure we crazy humans amuse Him quite often.
“A joyful heart is good medicine…….” Proverbs 17:22 a
Well…before we go on a trip, we always have a prayer after we get into the car. We ask for safety for us as we travel and for others travelling as well. And, because I believe in praying specifically, I ask Him to put His angels all around our car as we go. (Doesn’t it make you feel safe to think of His angels travelling along with you? It does me.)
So, as Joy and I were travelling home from Birmingham, we saw something we never thought we would see…RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR CAR! Exactly what we had prayed for! We both just laughed and laughed and laughed. And, then I made her slow down so that we could get a picture. I mean…I had no doubt at all that God had done as we asked. But, to SEE them…that’s another story!
Yes, there they were! Just like I had prayed for! One is sitting upright and two were lying down. But, I’m sure they, too, were on guard, nonetheless!
And, then I imagined God laughed and laughed and laughed.
“Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” Psalm 126:2
