Author: GodspenmanAdded: Mar 13 2022Views/Reads: 205/110Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Because of the great things God has done for me that has become the platform for healthy laughter in my life. Looking at my life from God’s perspective, there are many things that would induce laughter.

Since birth, I have been infected with a Laughter-Virus. I'm not sure
which side of the family it came from, or it could've come from both 
sides. But the least little thing will make me laugh. Sometimes I have 
a hard time stopping laughing. I have yet to find a mask big enough to 
cover my face while I'm laughing. 

If I am infectious with my laughter, so be it. It is one thing I can
give to the people around me. 

I have been a laughter connoisseur for a very long time. The least
little thing will make me break out in laughter. Sometimes at the most 
inappropriate time and place. But, what can I do? Laughter is laughter. 

I have enjoyed my years of laughter and expect many more to come. 

Although I believe laughter to be very good and healthy, I must confess
that sometimes my laughter has gotten me into trouble, especially with 
The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. 

Not long ago, she came into the living room with a worried look on her
face and asked me, “Do you know where my glasses are?” 

I immediately began to laugh because I assumed this was a joke. The
reason I assumed it was because her glasses were on the top of her 

She looked at me, “Why are you laughing? Do you know where my glasses
are? This is a serious question.” 

It's moments like this that are very difficult for me to stop laughing.
I had to suppress my laughter because I did not know exactly what she 
was getting at. Wives always have a way of tricking their husbands into 
doing something. Believe me, I have been tricked quite a few times 
throughout the years of our marital bliss. 

She turned around quickly and walked away, muttering something to the
effect of, “Why is he laughing at me?” 

A few minutes later, she came back wearing her glasses and said rather
firmly, “Why didn't you tell me my glasses were on the top of my head?” 

With a smothered smile, I looked at her and said, “I thought you were
just trying to trick me.” 

Looking back at me, she smiled one of those suspicious smiles, turned
around, and walked out. 

I couldn't help but smile, which eventually turned into laughter. 

But as everybody knows, what goes around comes around. 

Last Thursday was a long day, and I finally got home, walked into the
living room, my wife looked at me very strangely and said, “You did not 
have a jelly donut anytime today, did you?” 

With a hearty laugh, I responded by saying, “Of course not. You know I
don't eat donuts during the day?” And I laughed most heartily. 

“You sure about that?” She said on the edge of laughing. 

I laughed and shook my head, and started to walk away. 

“Well then,” she said rather slowly, “it looks like your shirt had a
donut without you knowing it.” 

I stopped in my tracks, looked down at my shirt, and there it was. A
drop of jelly from a donut. According to the evidence, I must've had a 
donut that day. 

I tried to laugh it off, but in a very stern voice, she said, “That is
not funny. Stop your laughing.” 

Laughing does have a way of getting you into trouble; at least, that has
