When life feels overwhelming, as it often does, we tend to be serious about everything. But even in the midst of great challenges, I think we still need moments to pause and let our hearts be light, even laugh out loud. I know sometimes that feels impossible or perhaps irreverent. Yet God reminds us that “the joy of the LORD is your strength” (Neh. 8:10).
So whether things are ok for you right now, or you’re feeling crushed by trials, or you’re somewhere in between…I hope you’ll take a few minutes today to pause. To breathe. And to think about something that makes you laugh or brings you joy. Don’t let hardships or pain consume you 24/7. Make a space once in a while for your heart to be light again.
Here’s a little something to help you out today. Some classic comedy, though not exactly the healthy way to secure food. =) Enjoy, and let the gift of laughter be a “little vacation for your soul” as my friend says. =)
God bless you!
