Sometimes when it gets really tough, perhaps in a challenging situation or conversation, the best remedy is simply to add in a touch of humour and laugh!
A guest speaker at a Yale University devotional took as his text the four letters ‘Y-A-L-E.’
“Y” he said “means youth” and he talked about that for 15 minutes.
“A” he continued, “stands for ambition” and that took another 15 minutes.
“L is for life,” another 15 minutes.
“E is for enthusiasm”… another 15 minutes to fill the hour.
As soon as the lecture was finished the students rushed to their classes as fast as they could go, all except one.
She knelt, apparently in prayer.
The speaker was deeply touched that he had so influenced at least one listener. He went down into the seats, touched the student on the shoulder and enquired why she was praying so earnestly. She lifted her face and said “I’m giving thanks that this is not the Massachusetts Institute of Technology!” 😅
If it’s a tough day ahead don’t forget to stop and have some fun too! 😊
