Once when I was younger, I certain brother and I decided we’d play “secret agents”. Sneaking around wearing all black was just too elementary for us, and we thought that we were ready for a bigger challenge. Since there was a wooden laundry shoot in the corner of my closet that lead to the basement, and it was just big enough for my seven year old self to fit in, we decided sending me down with rope tied around my waist was the greatest idea ever.
Needless to say, it didn’t work out too well.
My partner in crime didn’t lower me down too easy, I went crashing into the basement, taking a couple shelves and other items with me. And of course, my mother came rushing down the stairs to see what had fallen. She was surprised to find out it was me!
Although my wonderful mother was furious then, our whole family laughs uncontrollably every time we re-tell the story. I hope it brought a smile to your face, too!
Psalms 126:2 (KJV)
Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.

If the Lord has done something great for you, share it! In Psalms it says others will know us by our joy—they see that happiness that only God can give.
So look on the bright side this beautiful Saturday—It’s not easy, but being positive is a choice. Laugh today, too 🙂
God bless, Katie 🙂
