About Me

I was trying to find a suitable picture that wouldn't scare people and decided I haven't had a decent picture taken since 1994 or possibly earlier. So I found the picture on the left and thought it would be a lot easier on the eyes than a lot of others I could have used. This is my first attempt at blogging. I've never tried it before. I read a lot of blogs and I enjoy them but until today I haven't tackled my own. So here goes. We'll see what happens. Until I sat down to type, I actually thought I had a lot to say. Hmmmm. Don't rush me! I'm thinking! The plan here is to try to write something at least a few times a week and just say the things I'm thinking (well, maybe with a little editing depending on what has transpired on the particular day). 

Hopefully, this will be a success and I'll live up to the title I have chosen. I enjoy living my life and filling it with love and laughter. I think laughter is one of God's greatest gifts to us. Most people are far too serious. And for some reason Christians seem to think that fun and laughter have to be doled out sparingly. But I believe God put us here to enjoy life and enjoy each other. I also believe when Jesus walked on this earth, He laughed. I don't think He would tell us that the joy of the Lord is our strength and then go around sad and quiet all the time. I think He smiled--a lot. And I like to think that when He held the little children and spoke with them there was some laughter and tickling and fun going on at the same time.  Now you may disagree but let me just say I teach children's church and most Sundays they have me laughing out loud. So I think Jesus would have enjoyed their questions and answers as much as I do and I'm sure there was some laughter involved. But that's just my opinion. Of course, this is my blog, so live with it. : )

Speaking of kids, where do they come up with the stuff they come up with? Robert Fulghum wrote a book called "Everything I Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten." Well, my version of that would interject "children's church." In children's church I find out amazing things. There was the little girl that requested prayer for her mom and dad. I told her I hoped they felt better soon. She said, "Oh they're not sick. They just don't want to come to church." There have been too many funny moments to write down but I'm sure some of them will be in these pages.
So, hang around with me as often as possible. We'll laugh together. I promise.
