Getting to Know Laughter Again

Those who know me on most any level know that laughter is a sizable part of my DNA. Due to the loss of my son (and how we lost him), there hasn’t been much to laugh about the past year. Then,….i came across these ridiculous photos. (Two of them were taken a few years ago, the other one when I was in college.) They made me smile. And the Lord said to me, “You will laugh again. A lot.” David wrote, “weeping may last for the night,but joy comes in the morning.” Jesus said, “Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.” (Ps. 30:5; Luke 6:21)

For those who’ve struggled to find laughter in your lives, trust Christ and His Word – that’s what I’m doing. It’s all I know to do.

PHOTO #1: I woke up one morning and discovered that my hair had been awake all night, partying. PHOTO #2: Uh…it appears i found some snacks at the office, and….well, I don’t know…. PHOTO #3: around 1983; my fraternity at HSU in Abilene; Fall Homecoming Parade; Kazoo Marching Band; I’m the leader; Yes, I’m wearing a space helmet. (Our mascot was the “rebel”, hence the Rebel Flag. This was way before the era of political correctness.)
