One of the best sounds in the world is the laughter of a child! I love it when I get to play with my grandkids and they start to giggle. What a great sound! It makes me smile just thinking about it!
I love to laugh and I have one of those loud laughs when I get going. One of my favourite stories is when I taught a young adult class and a guy in the class asked if I had been at this comedy movie the night before night around 8 PM. I said, “Yes, how did you know?” He responded, “I could you hear your laugh from across the movie theatre!”
The Bible tells us there is great value in laughter! Solomon said it this way: “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.”
Here are some of my favourite quotes on laughter:
“Laughter is wine for the soul – laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness – the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.” ― Seán O’Casey
“I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t laugh.” ― Maya Angelou
“And I have one of those very loud, stupid laughs. I mean if I ever sat behind myself in a movie or something, I’d probably lean over and tell myself to please shut up.” ― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” ― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
“Always laugh when you can, it is cheap medicine.” ― George Gordon Byron
Here is a great video of two babies laughing.. it’s priceless
