Humor & Romance in the Air!?!?

It's funny how God reveals himself in the funniest of ways sometimes. He knows when life's going through a time of busyness, illness, etc. and when we sometimes don't stop to see the lighter side of life, He just floods our life with some of it, to help bring us to a much better place.

I heard this quote last made me laugh so hard, that I was almost in tears and I laughed until it hurt...what do you say would do this to a person? Well, here's the quote...

"I've finished picking my belly you want me to pick yours now?"

Life's a blast and the greatest of's not always the most predictable...things don't always happen in the time we feel to be the most perfect...there are definitely times where valleys of saddness, doubt and uncertainty, grief, despair, anger, etc. enter in, but through it all, He's there...sometimes His presence is felt more than others, but He's always there. Take time today to quiet yourself, experience some of God's great humor and especially His love and grace. Let Him speak to you...reflect on the many blessings He's given you...look towards the future and reflect on where He might be calling you...uplift those things which need to be taken off our human shoulders and put squarely on His heavenly ones, the exact place where He wants them! Whether it's a time where you laugh, cry, express your anger and disappointment, have confusion or uncertainty, are experiencing exhaustion and just want to quiet yourself to feel His it...He'll be right there with you and will give you everything you need!

Matthew 11:28-30
"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me--watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."

okay, so did you accept the offer? (hehe)

Moderation in all things and I think humor is a part of that mix. ;-)
