Faithful Friday - "Laughter is the Best Medicine"

A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health. Proverbs 15:30 (NLT)

A cheerful heart is good medicine. Proverbs 17:22a (NLT)

Laughter really is the best medicine! Here’s your daily dose of laughter, or at least a smile, today for Faithful Friday.  :)

Enjoy the Christian funnies!

We need to remember to take a moment to relax and find the humor and just laugh!  :)

These funnies are priceless..........from children.  I love hearing what they have to say!  :)

A little boy was overheard praying: "Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it. I'm having a real good time like I am."

A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"

One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."

The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel microphone, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, jerking the mike cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again. After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whispered, "If he gets loose, will he hurt us?"

Six-year old Angie and her four-year old brother Joel were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church."

"Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked.

Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two men standing by the door?

They're hushers."

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, Ryan, 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'

Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Okay Ryan, you be Jesus!"

A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore, where a seagull lay dead in the sand. "Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked.

"He died and went to Heaven," the dad replied.

The boy thought a moment and then said, "Did God throw him back down?"

Hope you're smiling right now!  :)

My daughter, Joy, and I invite you to join us for Faithful Friday. Grab the button code on my button page above or from Joy’s blog and attach it to your own Faithful Friday blog post. Then come link up that post with Joy (Doodlebug), so we can come visit! Faithful Friday was started by Joy when she was ten when she came up with idea because she wanted a way that she could share Jesus.  It’s all about Christians sharing an encouraging word, or even a prayer request. If you just stopped by to read, we thank you for that too! Be sure and drop by to visit Joy too.  She has a wonderful post about purity entitled Worth it.  :)

Have a great weekend!

Those last few ones from the kids cracked me up! "Because people are sleeping." Another reason why I love kids. :)

I loved these! It reminded me of the time we were sitting in church with all of the kids. We went to the early service back then. There was a family with 4 kids in the pew in front of us. One of their sons (he was about 10 at the time) must've been tired. He was at the end of the pew, and fell asleep, and literally rolled out of the pew and onto the floor doing a somersault as he went. We couldn't help it, we all started laughing. Poor kid :)
Thanks for sharing the funnies!
