One of the things I fell in love with my husband for is his sense of humor. We happen to enjoy a good laugh together. We have passed this trait on to our children. They each have a great sense of humor. That is a real blessing because when life is difficult it's always good to find something that will make you smile or laugh.
I remember when we'd break out into laughter when we'd be just about ready to have family prayer. Pat would 'scold' me since it was supposed to be a reverent time. I always lovingly reminded him that surely we gained our sense of humor from Heavenly Father, and that He would understand...eventually we would all calm down and have a reverent prayer. :)
Yesterday I was reminded of this humor trait we have in our family.
After my meeting yesterday Rach called. She has been sick for days - poor baby. :( (I really wish I was there to help her out, but instead I am home, helping Pat who is sick.) We had a lengthy conversation, much of it was heart felt. A while later I received a text from her. She said I should look up 2 Nephi 7:11, and read the first phrase.
I expected to find some great insight as I quickly went to my scriptures to see what was going to enrich my life!
Instead I found this:
"Behold all ye that kindle fire"
Ha! I got a good chuckle out of that one, especially since I am one who 'kindle(s) fire!" ;)
I am grateful for a sense of humor, and that it runs in the family!
