God has a sense of humor

I have reached a new rung on my ladder of public speaking. Yesterday I was the speaker at an annual dinner to honor caregivers in N.Ky. My topic was being joyful...no matter what the circumstances. Being joyful is a choice. And I needed to fill my talk with humor. If the audience laughing was an indication of my funny stories, I have to say that I was humorous.

It serves to prove to me that God has a sense of humor. If anyone who knew me 40 years ago had been told that I would be a speaker who makes people laugh, THEY would probably have said that that is the funniest thing they have ever heard!

Two important messages from this:

God can do amazing things with people.

Even widows are allowed to reach new rungs of a ladder.  To do the unexpected.  To be a different persona on this side of the passing of a spouse than they ever were when married.

It is all good.  And makes me curious what I will be like in 5 more years.
