A Little Fizz in Your Faith
"Laughter is carbonated holiness." - Ann Lamott, Plan B
"Laughter is the closest thing to the grace of God." - Karl Barth
"Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. … The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy" (Ps. 126:2–3).
Carolyn concludes with these words: "It's serious business, laughter. It's the kind of sacrifice of praise that puts our insides right. The old cliché is true: Laughter is a medicine that reminds us that our sickness will one day be healed and we shall be whole and holy. Until then, laughter is the Elmer's Glue that attaches us to the goodness that inhabits this world, and to the gladness that hints at the world to come."
