So today’s word is Fun. But I decided it needed an exclamation point so now it’s Fun!
(I think I am gonna throw off the 5 minute time restraint a little. Because it’s more fun!)
I like to do things that make me giggle with delight. I like to be around people that make me giggle with delight. I guess I like giggling with delight. Full on belly laughs are good too. My husband and I try really hard to have fun in our little family. We sing silly songs, make up silly games, tell silly jokes, have tickle fights (which are all one-sided because my husband is not ticklish. NOT FAIR!), and try to outdo each other with goofiness and silliness…and that is just the two of us. Our 6 year old joins in our silliness and fun and adds his own brand of humor. I am always happy to do things with friends that are fun. And sometimes I am surprised at how much fun I had when trying something new. I recently got to go shopping with a very good friend of mine and her teenage daughter. I love them both so dearly, so naturally we just have fun together. But, this shopping trip was extra fun for me because it’s something I rarely do. And, we always celebrate birthdays together (the daughter’s birthday is on my birthday, and the mom’s is the day after), so this year we went to shopping on Main Street in our college town. We looked at stuff, giggled at silly sayings on wall plaques and cards, ate too much goodies, and enjoyed each other’s company.
The best thing about fun is that afterwards my heart feels full of life and spirit. It’s hard to be grumpy and cranky when one is having fun. The ability to laugh is one of God’s greatest gifts, no? I mean, why else would Proverbs 17 :22 say ” A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bone.” (KJV).
So go out and have some Fun! people!
