Worthy is the LORD for He found it worthy that we be humorous.
When l got saved, my sisters feared that l would lose my jokes that kept them laughing through problems. Later after realizing that my jokes were more humorous and cleaner , she revealed to me that she thought l would be a stone faced person having nothing to laugh about. Not long ago my wife met a prophet and asked him why he does not like playing praise songs in his radio station, only worship, his reply was- there is nothing to praise about. When she came home and told me about it we laughed ourselves silly. I told my wife the prophet’s profession is currently on repentance so that people can return to God but in a church he can also laugh again. I cant forget the day God made me laugh for no apparent reason l just laughed and laughed and laughed feeling happy such that it bubbled all over me at one point l worried what if l don’t stop, Holy laughter something was happening in my spiritual person, l was never the same again. Laughter is good and healing and especially when one appreciates from whom it came.

People that have a mother, a real mother that loves them has the greatest gift in the world. It is difficult for me to not envy that. I know that I should not and cannot envy as it is a sin, but be grateful if you have or have had a mother who loves or really loved you... and you know it or knew it and knew it all along and were so happy, so very happy being truly loved.

Laughter does heal, but what this clip so beautifully showed was that it's not at the expense of empathy. It doesn't discount pain. Healing laughter blends with heart.
