humor.

Are you experiencing your share of joy, laughter, & humor?

Humor is an essential part of finding & maintaining balance in life. Without humor, where would we find joy? In the Holy Bible, the following scripture in Psalm indicates that even God laughs.

“The One enthroned in heaven laughs…”

Psalm 2:4 (NIV)

If God Almighty Himself laughs, should we not be imitating our Creator, & finding humor, joy, & pleasure in life? My belief is that we were created in God’s image, just as the Bible says, & part of that image is humor. Laughter is the best medicine & it nourishes the mind, the body, & the soul. There is an article on WebMD that describes the positive effect of laughter: http://www.webmd.com/balance/features/give-your-body-boost-with-laughter

If you have difficulty finding pleasure, humor, & joy in life, here are some tips to help you along the way:

  • watch a comedy
  • tell a joke
  • Laughter Yoga (yes, there is such a thing!)
  • don’t take yourself so seriously -laugh at yourself & your mistakes
  • reminisce through funny photos or stories
  • watch silly videos online -see the one below with my grand-cat, aka my daughter’s cat, Jigsaw aka Jiggy aka Jig

Jiggy has been harassed by a stray cat for months. This cat is sitting on a chair outside the window -notice its shadow through the blind. Watch as Jig gets payback.
