Laughter – Good medicine for your body, soul and spirit!

Need a Laugh?!

I just wanted to share some laughter with you today!  It really is good medicine – for body, soul and spirit!

I don’t know what your week has been like . . . frustrating, tiring, exciting, full of surprises (good?  bad?), depressing . . . ??  Mine has been full of many things – good and “not-what-I-expected” . . . but either way – I think today we all need a good belly laugh!

I think EVERY day we need a good belly laugh!  Laughter actually has healing properties to it!  So if you’re not feeling well . . . get that tummy shaking, those eyes watering, and your face hurting from laughing so hard!

So – here are some stories and jokes to get you started on an uproar of laughter today! 🙂

To start you off – watch this video first to get you chuckle motor started! {chuckle, chuckle . . . ahhh} Love it!

Jesus and Satan

Jesus and Satan have an argument as to who is the better programmer. This goes on for a few hours until they come to an agreement to hold a contest, with God as the judge. They set themselves before their computers and begin. They type furiously, lines of code streaming up the screen, for several hours straight. Seconds before the end of the competition, a bolt of lightning strikes, taking out the electricity.
Moments later, the power is restored, and God announces that the contest is over. He asks Satan to show what he has come up with. Satan is visibly upset, and cries, “I have nothing. I lost it all when the power went out.”

“Very well, then,” says God, “let us see if Jesus fared any better.” Jesus enters a command, and the screen comes to life in vivid display, the voices of an angelic choir pour forth from the speakers. Satan is astonished. He stutters, “B-b-but how?! I lost everything, yet Jesus’ program is intact! How did he do it?”
God chuckles, “Everybody knows… Jesus saves.”

Eulogy

3 buddies die in a car crash, they go to heaven to an orientation.

They are all asked, “When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning upon you, what would you like to hear them say about you?

The first guy says, “I would like to hear them say that I was a great doctor of my time, and a great family man.”

The second guy says, “I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher which made a huge difference in our children of tomorrow.”

The last guy replies, “I would like to hear them say……LOOK, HE’S MOVING!!!!!”

Funny Kid Quotes

A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they drew. She would occasionally walk around to see each child’s artwork. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.
The girl replied, “I’m drawing God.”
The teacher paused and said, “But no one knows what God looks like.”
Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the little girl replied, “They will in a minute.”

Little Bobby was spending the weekend with his grandmother after a particularly trying week in kindergarten. His grandmother decided to take him to the park on Saturday morning. It had been snowing all night and everything was beautiful.
His grandmother remarked…”doesn’t it look like an artist painted this scenery? Did you know God painted this just for you?”
Bobby said, “Yes, God did it and he did it left handed.”
This confused his grandmother a bit, and she asked him “What makes you say God did this with his left hand?”
“Well,” said Bobby, “we learned at Sunday School last week that Jesus sits on God’s right hand!”

May you be filled with JOY today!

Psalm 126:2-3

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.”
The LORD has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.

1 Peter 1:8

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Laugh Deep today!

    Lori, i didn’t see a general email contact link for you, so i decided to go this route. i so appreciated your comments to the author of ‘raising hell’, and i wonder if you’ve seen the pastor’s comments at the above link (posted via churchleaders.com)? There’s also another book you might be interested in, ‘erasing hell’ by francis chan. http://echoingfaith.blogspot.com/ dh
