    I am not prone to laughter. I take myself and life very seriously. I am not a joke teller and it has to be a really funny joke for me to laugh at it. Some people say that I am to serious and that I was born old and without a sense of humor. Therefore, I can really understand and I appreciate how laughter can be the “oil of joy.”

    For me, I can find laughter and joy through reminiscing about good times or bad times after the fact. It helps to release the tension and weight of past burdens or hard times. I also can find laughter in watching what I call brainless TV or movies like The Big Bang Theory or The Great Outdoors with John Candy.

    Laughter is good for the soul and so is crying. Sometimes I don’t know wether to laugh or cry, so I do both. I believe God gave us laughter and tears to help us not take ourselves or our circumstances so seriously and to lean on Him.
