Giving God a Laugh

“Doesn’t it say in the Bible that God laughs?” Julieann knew full well that Psalm 2 declares that “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh”, so I knew it was probably a loaded question.

“Well, Dad, I don’t know what He was laughing at in Psalms but I know He’s getting a good chuckle out of watching you feed that cat!” And she laughed delightedly. I started to cry.

Most folks know that my least favorite animal on the planet is a cat! But for the Lord’s sake and testimony sake and in a moment of serious weakness, Harriet and I agreed to feed our neighbor’s cat while she was away visiting her daughter. I’m not going into details but let me tell you, this is taking a bigger dose of God’s grace than even I had anticipated. And it is OK with me if you’ll ask the Lord to constipate that cat! J
