Grateful for His mercy, His unlimited grace.

Grateful that He sees me and I can see His face.

In all that He has done and continues to do

Simply because He says, “I love you.”

Daily Prompt Response: Seasons

Live in the Season

This is a great prompt. Seasons…we can all look at our lives and see the seasons of events. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 describes it best. God created the seasons of life and nature. I thought the Pinterest pin above describes what we really need to do in the various seasons of our lives. I added the Scripture verses for Ecclesiastes 3 after this for your reading pleasure.

Laughter is Necessary…But Everything is Not Funny

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Too Soon?.”

Randall is running as fast as he can being chased by his friends. He knew he would outrun them. They would not catch him. He turns to look back while still in very fast motion to see how far they were behind. Little did he know that would cost him the race. He ran smack in the middle of a huge oak tree. Wow! That hurt. He thought he would pass out and could feel the bump forming on his forehead. The friends catch up and are bursting with laughter? Funny or not?

Of course the friends are not thinking about the fact that Randall could be seriously hurt. The oak tree is a formidable opponent. Rather than check to make sure he’s alright, the laughter takes over and turns into a tearful, stomach-hurting long moment when Randall feels physical pain and then emotionally hurt because his friends see his mishap as a joke.

Everything is not funny. Sometimes it is necessary to make sure another person is alright after a mishap. I have an experience like this in my past… a long, long time ago. Really. It was not funny. I did understand the giggle box being opened by the incident but to me, it was not funny. I was hurting physically and emotionally. It has been said that we should laugh at the mishaps we experience in life. That taking things too seriously can be very destructive.

Making sure a person is alright before bursting into laughter at a mishap is the point here. And, while life happens and we can certainly laugh at ourselves, timing is everything. Ask any comedian. That said, I think some social media venues have gone to the extreme to make us laugh. Some posts are discouraging, painful, embarrassing. I know people are individuals; one group may find something funny and the other may not. For me everything is not funny.
