God Has a Sense of Humor

It happened just a few minutes ago.

I'm waiting at a red light in my car. It stopped raining, and I'm under a tree with my window 1/3 open. I lean back a little in the seat, talking to my mom who's sitting next to me on the passenger side.

So what are the odds of a large, freezing cold raindrop falling from the tree, and landing right in the crook of my very warm armpit?

About one in a gazillion. I know God meant
to do that!

All my mother saw was me making a huge gasp- she thought I was having an attack of some kind! But when I told her what happened, we both started cracking up. God's funny that way.

You can't tell me that God doesn't have a sense of humor. I think He made the platypus just to mess with Darwin! Just when we think we know something, God changes the rules. Like the size of an avocado pit. Or whales (the biggest mammals) who live on krill (creatures you can hardly see). Or that baby poo doesn't have an odor for the first few days, lulling us into a sense of false security. God likes to keep us on our toes; one of His best tools is humor.

So the next time something funny happens to you and it seems like the odds are a bazillion to one that it would ever happen, look up. You'll surely feel Him grinning!

Well said! And I do agree. Many times I imagine Him rolling with laughter at our antics and responses to some of His "jokes." He sure has a way of getting His point across!

Love the thought of God's sense of humor! Laughter is good for the body and soul, so it's nice of God to offer opportunities to laugh.
