Giggles

laughter good medicine, happy Christian stereotype, Does God get the Giggles?
"You have a weird sense of humor, Grammy," my freckle-faced granddaughter told me. 

"You do" chimed in her two sisters. 

"Why do you think that?" I smiled. 

"You just do," in unison. 

I knew what they meant. They bring me such pleasure and sometimes something they say or do is so fun and innocent that I get the giggles. I think they like my laughter even when they don't understand it, and I love to hear their laughter too. 

Is there anything quite as fun as hearing a baby’s first laugh or a back seat full of giggly little girls? 

I think God sometimes gets the giggles looking at us, and He must enjoy our laughter since He created the laugh.

Since "a merry heart is good like a medicine" (Proverbs 17:22), let’s do our part to overturn the world’s stereotype of a frowning Christian killjoy and spread a little healing today.

  1. Have you ever noticed that once someone starts giggling, you just can't help giggling right along with them? You may not even know what caused the giggling to start, but you can't help yourself! I'm glad your grandkids noticed your "weird" sense of humor!

    1. Yes, Carol, it's contagious for sure. One fun thing I remember about my mom was when she would get the giggles with us.

  2. My serious little babies are just starting to laugh...but very occasionally. There life is all about eating right now...and like babies we sometimes focus too heavily on the issues of our life that cause stress and do not smile just like a baby desperate to nurse. Smiling and laughter is contagious in dispelling stress. Though the problem is still there it dispels stress.

    You make me want to hear you laugh so I can experience your weird sense of humor, LOL!!

  5. There are few sounds as precious to me right now as my two-year-old nephew's giggle. There are days I feel like I would do almost anything to spark that little laugh!
