The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. (E. E. Cummings, 20th century American poet)

Cummings’ thought might seem a bit extreme to us; there are so many other important issues to be addressed every day. But no doubt we have all recognized the very real value of humor in our lives. It eases stress; it improves relationships, and it might even be contagious. A little humor can engender laughter in a group that really lightens the moment and the day.

We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy . . .  Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!  What joy! (Psalm 126: 2-3)
