Can a Christian Laugh

Is there a place for humor in the Christian Life?

Some of us look like we were weaned on a lemon

Some seem to think laughter is forbidden

Took me a long time to learn to laugh

Now I rather enjoy it



I found this story on Larknews

I hope you enjoy and try

Man, 91, dies waiting for will of God




TUPELO Walter Houston, described by family members as a devoted Christian, died Monday after waiting 70 years for God to give him clear direction about what to do with his life.
"He hung around the house and prayed a lot, but just never got that confirmation," his wife Ruby said. "Sometimes he thought he heard God's voice, but then he wouldn't be sure, and he'd start the process all over again."
Houston, she says, never really figured out what his life was about, but felt content to pray continuously about what he might do for the Lord. Whenever he was about to take action, he would pull back "because he didn't want to disappoint God or go against him in any way," Ruby says. "He was very sensitive to always remain in God's will. That was primary to him."
Friends say they liked Walter though he seemed not to capitalize on his talents.
"Walter had a number of skills he never got around to using," says longtime friend Timothy Burns. "He worked very well with wood and had a storyteller side to him, too. I always told him, 'Take a risk. Try something new if you're not happy,' but he was too afraid of letting the Lord down."
To his credit, they say, Houston, who worked mostly as a handyman, was able to pay off the mortgage on the couple's modest home.
