beretMy 15 month old granddaughter wanted me to wear a beret they have in a dress up trunk. I placed it on my head and we laughed, we giggled we had a great time. In Psalms 126:2 we read, “Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.”

There is so much pain in our world. Prejudice, hate, religious wars, bombings, children being abused, sexual trade, illness, cancer. The list goes on and on. But when you do some Bible study you come to a realization. God never meant for the world to be that way. His creation was “good” then we came along and willingly sinned and things went wrong.

Abba Anthony, often considered as the father of the monastic movement wrote, “From our neighbors is life and death. if we gain our brother, we gain God, but if we cause our brother to stumble, we sin against Christ.”

Today do something for your brother or sister in Christ. More than that just do something fun for a neighbor, a co-worker. Don’t worry about what you look like, don’t let your ego get in the way. Just enjoy God’s presence and laugh with another.

Take a moment to pause on the path today and…laugh!
