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 humorous articles from my book, MLS03 “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.
(3) Children’s Church Chuckles: Teacher: What are you drawing? Girl: “I’m drawing God.” Reply: “No one knows what God looks like.” Girl: “They will in a minute.” Teacher: “Why should you be quiet in church?” Girl: “Because people are sleeping” Teacher: “We have studied the kings and queens in the Bible, but what is higher?” A van kid yelled, “That’s easy – Aces.” Edith: “Mom, my name is in the Bible!” “And he edith (eateth) with sinners.” Teacher: Can you name Elijah’s horse? Answer: “Isme.” Elijah always said, “Woe (whoa) is me.” Teacher: Can you name the angels? Boy: Gabriel, Michael and Harold. “Harold?” Kid: “Hark the Herald (Harold) angel sing.” Easter: “What’s in this big large egg?” Kid: “Pantyhose!” Prayer: “and deliver us from email.” Boy: “I like her cuz she smells like peanut butter.” How kids hear songs: And He walks with me and He talks with me. Girl: “Andy, they’re singing about you. Tell it to Jesus (Tell little Jesus). He broke the bonds of prison for me (He bought a box of presents for me). He taught me how to watch and pray. (He taught me how to wash and spray). Lead on old king eternal.” (Lead on old kinky turtle). Kid: “Mother, you said grandfather was in Heaven. He’s not in Heaven, he’s in that box.” As the boy was being taken outside, he yelled to the church, “Please pray for me.” Mother: “Don’t cry, sweetie, your cat is now in Heaven.” Girl: “What does God want with a dead cat.” Darkness: “Don’t cry, sweetie, God sent His angels to protect you.” Girl screams, “Oh, no, WHERE ARE THEY?” Wisdom: Little boy to bully, after he drew a line in the dirt, “Step over that line. Good now we are on the same side.” Teacher: “If I join the church, can I go to Heaven?” No! “If I am baptized, can I go to Heaven?” No! Finally, “How can I go to Heaven?” A small boy yelled, “You’ve gotta die.” Dat’s All – Y’all.
Dickens said,“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” We know exactly what he meant. But even during a pandemic we need a time to laugh or maybe smile. Sing this song, “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, try smiling while you sing it again. Did you smile? If you did, these articles were not in vain. If you see someone without a smile, give them yours.
