Sweet Humor

"Humor is a spontaneous, wonderful bit of an outburst that just comes.  It's unbridled, it's unplanned, it's full of surprises."
--Erma Bombeck

Last week, I wrote about our sense of humor and shared a clean joke with you about the cost of male and female brains. 

Please allow me to share one more clean joke with you this time. This joke is more of a chuckle instead of a belly laugh—it’s a sweet reminder that children do listen when we talk. Sometimes they put a different slant on what the speaker may have meant and that’s what makes this little story endearing to me. Here it is:

One early morning a dad and his young son were in
the pickup truck on their way to a fishing hole.

"Dad," the boy said, "look at that pretty sunrise."

"You're right, it sure is pretty," his dad said.

"And just think, Dad, God made it with His left hand."

"What do you mean?"

"Well, He had to make the sunrise with His left hand because Jesus is sitting on His right hand."

Along with humor, our children and grandchildren are a blessing, a gift from God.
