Humor is Surprise #25

Genesis 18:  Sarah laughed!

Sarah denied: “I did not laugh.”

God: “Oh yes, you did laugh.”

God has a huge surprise in store for Sarah.  I think God is just giggling with glee in this entire scene, about the surprise that awaits Sarah in 9 months.

God’s surprising sense of humor is all around today.  For example, I was outside raking up some old leaves and twigs from my flower beds.  The black dirt I uncovered was cold and dead.  Several hours later when I returned to pick up some tools, I saw tiny green tips poking up from the earth.  I laughed to myself – how strange and surprising that this cold dead dirt can burst forth with life!

I think God loves to surprise us with a holy sense of humor.
