It’s the truth…I’m a simpleton.
Every time that I watch “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” I laugh until I cry. It is absurd, and nonsensical, and wholly improbable, but I don’t care.
It’s just like The Three Stooges to me…I always laugh. I love foolishness. I love “slapstick” humor. A belly laugh is one of the most powerful healing events one can experience. My advice? Find something that will cause you to laugh uncontrollably, and abandon yourself to it. Give yourself away, and laugh until your sides hurt and tears of hilarity fill your eyes.
Christmastime is touted as a wonderful time of happiness and joy. Truth is, it usually isn’t. There is a lot of stress, a lot of expectations…and maybe you can’t meet them all. Odds are, you WON’T. So, what you need is a laugh.
Jesus is not presiding over all of this pressure and commercialism. Don’t think for a second that He is. Jesus is about JOY and PEACE. If you don’t have those, you don’t have Christmas.
I say again…LAUGH until it hurts. You’ll feel better as a result, and you will come closer to Christ than any amount of gifts could possibly attain.
I wrote it before, and will write it again…SMILE MORE, THINK LESS. Let laughter be your gift to all that you meet.
Many Blessings To All…
