Daily Scripture - Job 8:21
Feature: Community of Mirth
She was a little on the grumpy side for the better part of a week. Caryn was walking around the house, slamming things, hoping to get her husbands attention. One Tuesday Caryn was upset over a minor thing, if you ask her today, she wouldn't remember what it was.
Caryn walked into the kitchen, and slammed a jar of baby food on the container. The food went airborne from inside and landed all over the counters and wall. It was a mess. But it made her laugh, soon after she finished scrubbing the wall.
Laughter is the universal language of our people. It's spoken in happiness or amusement. Laughter can release anger or bring relief. Whatever the source, the influence is the same; laughter is catchy.
God is the ultimate comedian, but instead of using jokes, it's situations that bring about the chuckles. The Holy Father sits in the heavens and listens to our laughter.
When we laugh together we're whispering silent secrets of wisdom to one another. Laughter gives birth to bliss. It's the sound of one soul speaking volumes to another without uttering a word. Laughter invites the hopeful to develop a loyal following. Laughter increases our community of mirth, a happy heaven we can live in on Earth.
