I trust that all of you are having a happy and productive summer. I have experienced one of the busiest summers in my life! However, i’m havin’ fun! As I grow in age and responsibility; i’m understanding more and more the the critical role laughter and comedy MUST play in our everyday lives. I have had a commandment for myself (one which I frequently break) that has sustained me in some tumultuous times and states the following:
“Thou shalt laugh hard (gut-busting) daily; If not, simply begin at the beginning of this sentence and proceed.”
Laughter is time tested, and it remains an elixir for the soul. Even in Biblical times, laughter was prescribed to the hurting hearts (Proverbs 17:22, Proverbs 15:13). So I thought that a great gift to you and I would be to use the blog as a medium to recount some hilarious moments in television. The blogs that are forthcoming will hopefully serve as good medicine for you and I; actually, I hope it serves as a dietary supplement to you and hopefully, it’s good to your bones…
