Thought for the Day: It was Will Rogers who said, “An onion can make people cry but there’s never been a vegetable that can make people laugh.” Will Rogers might be right in regard to there never being a vegetable that can make people laugh, but my kid Zach would laugh hysterically each time I’d say the word, “Kumquat!” Maybe it’s because kumquats are a fruit and fruits are so much funnier than vegetables. I only share this because memories can be a wonderful source of laughter, especially when we are feeling out of sorts and not very connected. I have a feeling there are a number of memories that in this moment, just bringing them to the forefront of your mind, will put a smile on your face. And if that doesn’t work, just say the word, “Kumquat!” My kid may still laugh.
Prayer: In times of difficulty, when life challenges us at the core, touch us with your Spirit of Joy, O Lord. Provide us with a story that provides life and laughter. Amen.
