Laughing Prayers

Usually we try to be pretty reverent during bedtime prayers. On Sundays I always pray and just before we started we were all giggling and and each time there was silence and I was ready to begin, we all would burst out laughing. What a great way, and I mean it, what a great way to enter into prayer. . . with hearts bursting with happiness and joy.

I eventually started the prayer off by being silly and we all settled down from there. Just a reminder God is not an old curmudgeon, He wants and expects us to have joy and laughter.
