Laughter

I had to laugh! At myself and with God.  I had prayed for some particular things for one of my kids as we moms often do.  And the answer one one was out of the blue but an  answer!

After a moment of stunned silence when I realized this was the answer, the laughter bubbled up inside of me!  He answered my prayer! In a most unexpected way!

Now I know this verse is totally out of context but this child of joy and four others has brought us so much joy! And my granddaughters!  I am not as old as Sarah but old enough to laugh at myself because I am a grandmother and a mom of a tweenie!  I just chuckle sometimes at how God knows just what I need!  Still laughing!

And Sarah said, “God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh over me.” Genesis 21:6

About chinamom3078

I am a woman who loves Jesus who loved me first. Prone to wander and distraction is common for me as I seek to reflect Him in my daily life. I am wife, mom, and grandma who has lived on 3 continents in 26+ apartments, townhouses, military housing, suburbs and now a 200 plus year old farm house. Preparing and hosting meals for the hundreds who have passsed through our home has been a joy and blessing to our family as we listened and shared over meals, coffee, light nights and Bible studies. A rich life! I have reached the age to feel qualifies to be an ”older woman” (as in Titus) even though I feel far from old and have plenty of room to grow each and everyday. And my joy is to teach Bible studies and help train other women to lead well.
