Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
“You can laugh, you can cry,
you can live, you can die,
but there’s no love without scars.”
(“Scars”, a song in progress by Diana Rasmussen)
Funny how the same situation can make you laugh or cry, depending on where you are at. Is the glass half empty or half full? Did the chicken come first or the egg? Timeless questions that make us think and ponder the meaning of our existence.
As I get older, things that used to make me cry are now funny. Like when I locked my ex out of the house when he was in his bathrobe. Yep, it was another fight, and he had the hood of my car open and was pulling things apart. God told me to lock the door, so I did, and called the police…needless to say, he had to leave that night. At the time I was frightened, afraid of what he might do to me, and crying. But today, now that I am free, it’s hilarious!
MY PRAYER FOR YOU:
Help us find the humor in things today. You are the author of laughter, let the joy of the Lord overtake us like a flood. Help us not to take ourselves so seriously, and be thankful for all that you have done in us and through us. Let us dance in the rain, in Jesus’ name.
GOD’S PROMISE FOR YOU:
Everything Has Its Time
To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NKJV)
