I RAN ..........HAHAHAHA

The word tells us that laughter is good medicine. I have found myself the past few months not laughing enough, so I plan on changing that.

I was born laughing and it was always my intentions of making people laugh. My sweet grandmother said that I had "dancing" eyes full of mischief. She was such a wise little lady. Me and my older brother PE used to get excused from the supper table more nights than we were allowed to stay (you would have thought I would have been a skinny child NOT!!) AND church, I will not even go there. We would sit on the back pew, like most adolescents and some where in the course of the song service or preaching, something would get us started and there was no hope. We would have to slip out the back door and hope that we were not heard though those large wooden doors.

I remember once on a Sunday night the little women from the WMU
' s (I think that is what they were called) They were doing a little skit about different countries and where the Baptist Missionary's were teaching and preaching the gospel. Each one of these little ladies were dressed (as best they could) in the native dress of their country. They wore a banner across their chest much like the beauty contestant that cross the floor in their little skimpy bikinis. Anyway, across the stage they came one by one and read or quoted a little bit of information regarding their country and the missionaries there.

As each one finished they would cross the platform and go out the side door of the sanctuary which led outside to the parking lot. There was on particular lady who we all knew as Mrs Reed, a precious saint of God that prayed more than she did anything else, across her banner read " I RAN. I do not know who made the banners but they place a space between the I and the R, well that got us started and before we could contain ourselves she finished her little speech and headed out the side door. It was not 4 seconds that we heard a motorcycle start up out side and it was Katie Barr The Door. Me and PE could no longer contain ourselves and out the door we went with the entire body of Christ watching as we went, INCLUDING little Grandmother. Boy were we ever in trouble. You just had to be there............ Laughter, we did a lot of that when we were young. IN FACT you get me and PE together in person or even over the phone and nothing has changed. Ask anyone, we can laugh and laugh and people just have to stand aside and wonder what in the world.

Laughter is good medicine........... Have you taken you medicine today.......

(I got this in an email today)

I had to post this......... I laughed out loud....... If you have seen it, read it again.


I had a flat tire on the interstate, so I eased my car over to the shoulder of the road, carefully got out of the car and opened the trunk.

I took out 2 cardboard men, unfolded them and stood them at the rear of my car facing oncoming traffic.

They look so life like you wouldn't believe it! They are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies to the approaching drivers.

To my surprise, cars start slowing down looking at my lifelike men which made it safer for me to work at the side of the road.

And of course, traffic starts backing up. Everybody is tooting their horns and waving like crazy. It wasn't long before a state trooper pulls up behind me.

He gets out of his car and starts walking towards me. I could tell he was not a happy camper!

'What's going on here?'

'My car has a flat tire', I said calmly.

'Well, what are those obscene cardboard men doing here by the road?'

I couldn't believe that he didn't know. So I told him, 'Helloooooo, those are my Emergency Flashers.


  1. Thanks for making me laugh sweetie, I love you.

  2. LOL....love the 'story'. And yes, we ALL need MORE laughter in our hearts.

  3. LOL!! Thank you for a good dose for today....

  4. I laugh at the silliest things, doesn't take me much, I have a co~worker who made me laugh just the other day as I was taking a drink of water from my water bottle and I sprayed!!!!! people got so mad at me! I didn't mean too for crying out loud, but these people who got mad are a bowl of sour grapes! my children use to laugh in church and I'd get so mad, take them outside and scold them and they say "Mom, cant help it" so I chucked up as the devil trying to side track me so I couldn't hear the word, and Bro. F said once "Don't take the babies outside, it's the spirit of the laughter in them" enjoy it. but if I saw that " I ran" I guarantee you I'd be rolling in the isle!!
    I was giggling reading this post.
    Love ya~
    waiting for your e~mail, you said you had something you wanted to tell me.

  5. hahahah that is hilarious, where can I get some of those cut outs? LOL.


  6. Thanks for sharing the laughter with us dear sister.

    Praying for you and your family as I leave your blog today. I'm thankful I stopped by for a visit, some love and some laughter. You always make us feel at home.

    Love ya!

  7. Good, good medicine. Thanks for the merry heart! Sure would like to get together with you and that brother of yours. You reminded me of my adolescent days. Remembering the time our pastor was preaching and his false teeth fell down in his mouth.. Wow. we were a mess the rest of the service.

  8. Thank you so much...you are so right...we need to laugh more. You also caused me to think of my childhood. Just because we aren't children any more doesn't mean we should stop laughing. We are God's children and He wants us to enjoy life...and He gave us that medicine of laughter.

    Hugs to you.

  9. Thank you - We should be joyful in the Lord...
    Let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy.
    Psalm 5:11
    Love to you.

  10. This is so easy to believe about you. Wonder why that is?

  11. Sometimes, especially when your a kid, it doesn't take anything to make you break out in intense laughing. Then if you get in trouble it just makes it worse. I wish we could be like that as adults.

  12. Nice start to a sweet SAturday morning! I am "raised up" and entertained. Thank you.
