Laughter is Good Medicine

"All the fat is the Lord's"
(Leviticus 3:16)

Lately I've started playing with creating my own memes. Why? Because the truth is, I don't think we Christians laugh enough, and in my way of thinking, that's a shame. Laughter is God-created too. He must have had a reason for it.

Memes are great because they're short easy to read messages. They can engage a busy reader who may not give you the time for even a short blog post. Little blurbs, that hopefully resonate some profound nugget of truth, mixed with a comical chuckle-inducing pun and image. What fun! You could say they are the bumper stickers of the online world, and who hasn't chuckled a time or two by bumper stickers? We all have.

Laughter is good medicine.

Yes, that is my dog and me. I was particularly amused by the look on her face, enhanced by her closed eyes, as if she were thinking, "Oh no, not another bad dad joke." What perfect meme fodder! LOL.

It is no secret that I could stand to lose a bit of weight; so could fur-baby according to the vet. But the humorist side of me was amused to jokingly justify my obesity and not bother dieting because, as Leviticus tells us, "all the fat is the Lord's." Who are we to strive with our dieting to take it away from Him? (Not even close to being theologically correct; I know).

So watch for them. They'll pop up from time to time on Facebook and/or Twitter and be identified with the embedded in them. Hopefully, at the very least, they bring a little smile to your day as they do to me. Peace and Blessings.

"There is a time for everything … [including] a time to laugh."
Ecclesiastes 3: 1,4
