Obviously, there are many, many serious issues in the church and world today, and if you’ve followed the blog for any length of time, you know I have a good track record of dealing with those issues on a regular basis in a serious way: Bible study…the gospel…sin…obedience to Scripture…discernment…and so on.
But sometimes, as human beings, we just need a momentary break from the serious to be silly and laugh. Ecclesiastes 3:4 says that just as there is a time to weep, there is an equally valid, and righteous, and good time to laugh. Sometimes I talk to Christians who seem to believe that we’re supposed to have our sense of humor amputated when we get saved, and that’s just not true. Proverbs 17:22 says:
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22Tweet
We need to laugh. We need moments of of refreshing.
If you disagree with any of that, or you just don’t like, or are easily offended by humor for whatever reason, this would be a good time to stop reading and go do something you enjoy, or tackle that “to do” list, or whatever. You’ve been warned. No complainies.
In case you’ve somehow managed to avoid them, there are feminists out there who can’t wrap their tiny little closed minds around the fact that godly women actually find joy in loving and serving our husbands and families. They seem to think – out loud, vociferously, and frequently, particularly on social media – that the only reason a woman might do such a thing is because she’s been brainwashed, downtrodden, or forced to.
So, I did a thing on Twitter the other day, and I thought it might give you a smile…
Everything – I mean, everything – has to be caveated and explained to death these days (are y’all as sick of that as I am?)…
I kid you not, somebody asked me what my motive was for saying, “I *are* one,” instead of, “I *am* one.” Humor, my friend. Humor.
Of course, then everybody had to get in on the act. Back off, people. Can’t you tell I’m a humor professional?
Men. They’re just lost without a helper.
Leslie is usually so on the ball with these sorts of things. It’s not like her to leave out an ingredient.
I started to say, “That heifer is out of the barn,” but I’m sure that’s sexist…to somebody.
These men will never learn…
That’s right, just keep on wallowing in your wrongy-wrongness of manhood.
Yes, three slices. That’s why you’re still aspiring, honey.
Everybody’s a comedian. But since he’s a MAN, I’ll let him have the last word, as is fitting.
Now get in the kitchen and make your man a sammich of oppression and subjugation, ladies. (My husband said it was OK for me to say that. :0)
