Don’t fear, because I am with you; don’t be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will surely help you; I will hold you with my righteous strong hand. ~ Isaiah 41:10 (CEB)
Funny Friday: A funny personal story
A few years back, my oldest daughter broke her wrist. Now there’s nothing funny about a broken wrist but what is funny was her assistant principal’s reaction when she went to school the next day.
I came in to school to bring her some ibuprofen to help with her pain while she was at school and while I was standing in the nurse’s office assistant principal came in. With a very concerned look on her face she said, “Oh my goodness what happened?” We told her it was a roller blading accident and when she replied we were expecting something profound or some words of wisdom but what we got was completely different. She replied with, “You see… That’s why I don’t exercise. It’s dangerous!”
That one caught all of us off guard and I hope it makes you smile little bit today too.
May you find something to make you laugh today and your pain just a little.
