The best medicine?

How do folk survive life without a sense of humour? It's claimed that laughter relieves stress. It certainly lessens tension and, often, can be a really useful coping mechanism. Those who work in the most macabre professions - ministers and funeral directors included- often have the keenest sense of humour. It helps us through many a crisis.
This week I came across someone who didn't appear to have a sense of humour, who was really intense and precious. I was just baffled. How is it possible to do all that is asked of us, to cope with all that life throws at us without, more than occasionally, having a good old belly laugh. In this season of Lent, even if we have to reserve it for the sabbaths, may you find plenty of opportunity and occasion to laugh.
