Laughter is a gift and when done in earnest goodness, it is very refreshing
and love spreading. Only when done in derision is laughing harmful.
I enjoy a good joke and I love a good comedy show of any type. I am told I have a belly laugh, which to me is preferable to a horse laugh. I laugh often because I look at life with humor and love. Although I laugh at funny things, I laugh most often at myself. And I believe that God laughs with me. One of my favorite sayings is: “When man makes plans, God laughs.” Yes, I believe that God laughs; if we are made in His image, then if we laugh God laughs.
When we truly connect with God through the Holy Spirit dwelling within us, we are gladdened by the change in our life. We smile, which is the mildest form of laughter, and it is initiated by the presence of God and Grace in our lives.
