There is a time to weep, and a time to laugh (Eccl. 3:4). We need both as one helps offset the other. Why? Because “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine” (Prov. 17:22). Also a merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken (Prov. 15:13). I have compiled six humorous articles from My book, MLS3 “My Laugh Lines” as prescriptions for a pandemic to give you an escape and replace gloom with gladness, and weariness with wit. Why? God is still on the throne and the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord (Prov. 21:1). God is still working all things together for our good and His glory (Rom. 8:28). So during a pandemic, take my prescription of one large dose of humor until you smile or maybe even laugh.
Family Fun: She: “What are you going to do today?” He: “Nothing!” She: “That’s what you did yesterday.” He: “I know, but I did not get finished.” He: “You are impossible!” She moved close to him and said, “No, I’m next to impossible.” Fact: A woman marries a man expecting him to change, but he doesn’t. A man marries a woman expecting her not to change, but she does. New bride: “Pastor, we just had our first spat. It was awful!” Pastor: Well, all marriages have problems. Bride: I know, I know! But what do I do with the body? 50th Anniversary: As he rocked, he leaned proudly toward her and said, “You have been tried and true.” She yelled back, “I’m tired of you too.” Man was asked, “What’s the secret of your long marriage.” He: “I made a vow.” She: I remember when you nibbled my neck. He quickly left and said, “I’m going to get my teeth.” Speaker: A husband should know his wife’s favorite flower. He whispered to his wife, “It’s Pillsbury all-purpose, isn’t it?” Age: Wife with new glasses looking in mirror: “Oh no! Look at all the wrinkles, bags, and age spots. Quick, honey, give me a good compliment.” He: “You sure have good eyesight.” She: “Honey, I think you need a hearing test.” He: “Why do I need a hairy chest?” He: “Honey I don’t have a yacht, limousine, or mansion like Harry, but I love you.” She: “I love you too, but tell me more about Harry.” A man wrote and mailed many letters and cards to his sweetheart.

At this time also remember: To the world you may be only one person, but to one person you may be the world. I need you, you need me, we all need the Lord. “I love us.” Loving moments make lasting memories – TC. As Dickens said, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” During this pandemic, we know exactly what he meant. But even during these times, it is also a time to laugh or maybe smile. Sing, “You can smile, when you can’t say a word. You can smile, when you cannot be heard. You can smile, when it’s cloudy or fair. You can smile anytime, anywhere.” Now, smile while you sing it again. Did you smile? If you did, these articles were not in vain. When someone does not have a smile, give them yours. Also share these articles with others. Prescriptions for Pandemics.
