Something to make you laugh

  “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones” Proverbs 17:22

God created laughter for a reason.  According to scripture it is good medicine for our soul.  The reason is that laughter helps relieve our bodies of stress and heartache, even only if temporarily.  For those few minutes, laughter will cause us to take our eyes off of our circumstances.   This morning I would like to share with you what someone has sent me.  May God use it to encourage and strengthen you.



The minister was  preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to  ask the congregation to come up with more money  than they were expecting for repairs to the church  building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that  the regular organist was sick and a substitute had  been brought in at the last minute. The substitute  wanted to know what to play.”Here’s a copy of  the service,” he said impatiently. “But, you’ll  have to think of something to play after I make  the announcement about the finances.” During  the service, the minister paused and said, “Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the  roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and  we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up.” At that moment, the substitute organist played “The Star  Spangled Banner.”And that is how the substitute became the regular  organist!
