Laughter

When God gave us laughter He meant it to be

An outward expression of some inner glee,

That’s laughter – the sound of a happy surprise.

The purpose of laughter is simple and sane,

Not mocking or cynical, sour or inane,

Not a hurt to the hearer, a snigger to sting,

For God gave us laughter a blessing to bring.

So let’s use this talent for what God intends,

For helping and healing ourselves and our friends,

Its a fountain of fun, and a musical sound –

God fully intends us to spread it around.
