There is something that happens to the deep parts of the soul when you can laugh out loud and freely. It had to be created by a good God, the way the stomach tightens and the cheeks get sore and the tears come streaming out of your eyes in pleasure. After a long time without the beauty of deep laughter a regular occurrence in my life, I can say that it is a worshipful, pleasurable experience worth cultivating.
[Our responses and reactions to the things that happen around us reveal the depth of our character and nature. They are opportunities, also, to show the character and love of God. This Lenten Season I am practicing awareness by looking for deep truth in everyday things. Check out other posts under Lent.]
Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” Psalm 126:2
