We Are Blessed With Humor

I am too prideful

Monday I lost seven pounds

Tuesday I found them


 

Source Of All Blessings

 

You bless us

With humor – ours and others’.

Laughter at ourselves, our predicaments,

Our foibles.

Laughter at our situation, its dangers,

Its ludicrousness,

With guffaws, chuckles, winces

We physically relax and let go.

Our worries of the moment

For a moment

Are replaced with re-connection

to the human joy

of life.

 

Thank you for the gift of humor.

 

May we laugh in difficult times,

at difficult times,

and at my bad jokes.*


*Thanks to Br. David Steindl-Rast for the inspiration and the format for this, from his wonderful book, 99 Blessings.
