E VOTIONAL BY DR. TERRY SWICEGOOD APRIL 28 2020

ON LAUGHTER

The comedian Phyllis Diller said that a smile is a curve that sets everything straight.

I have written in previous E Votionals how laughter is healing. Bad news fills our days, and we need relief.

And I have quoted Psalm 2 that “He who sits in the heavens laughs.” I believe that God enjoys a good joke and smiles at something that’s funny.

So from time to time I’m going to forward to you humor about our situation that surrounds the Covid-19.

A FEW THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM ISOLATION

I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone.
He asked me what I was wearing…

2019: Stay away from negative people. 2020: Stay away from positive people.

The world has turned upside down. Old folks are sneaking out of the
house, and their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!

You think it’s bad now? In 20 years our country will be run by people
home-schooled by day drinkers…

This virus has done what no woman had been able to do…cancel all
sports, shut down all bars, and keep men at home!!!

Do not call the police on suspicious people in your neighborhood!
Those are your neighbors without makeup and hair extensions!
Since we can’t eat out, now’s the perfect time to eat better, get fit,
and stay healthy. We’re quarantined! Who are we trying to impress? We
have snacks, we have sweatpants – I say we use them!

Day 7 at home and the dog is looking at me like, “See? This is why I
chew the furniture!”

Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep
washing our hands???

I never thought the comment “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6 foot
pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!

Me: Alexa what’s the weather this weekend?
Alexa: It doesn’t matter – you’re not going anywhere.

Can everyone please just follow the government instructions so we can
knock out this coronavirus and be done?! I feel like a kindergartener
who keeps losing more recess time because one or two kids can’t follow
directions.

I swear my fridge just said “what the heck do you want now?”

Quarantine has turned us into dogs. We roam the house all day looking
for food. We are told “no” if we get too close to strangers. And we
get really excited about car rides

PRAYER: GOD WE THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER. FORBID THAT WE BECOME
SO OVERWHELMED BY NEGATIVE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WE MISS THE JOY
EVER BEFORE US, EVERY DAY. AMEN
