Live, Laugh, and Love

Last Update: December 14, 2016

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.

The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.

The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.

The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol - Dead

The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead

Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead

Fourth worm in good clean soil -Alive!

So the Minister asked the congregation - What can you learn from this demonstration?

Maxine, who was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said,

'As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!'

We can become so preoccupied with our tasks that we fail to take care of ourselves. Laughter is good for us. We can laugh at worm jokes and even laugh at ourselves every once in a while.

I remember the time I was asked to paint directional arrows on a short entrance into a parking lot. I got down to business and finished the task, only to realize that I had painted the arrows in the same direction on both sides of the entrance way! No, I'm not kidding. It wasn't funny then. But it is today! HA!

I'm sure I'll make some silly mistakes during this WA process. But, hey, what's really important is that we accept ourselves by living every moment, laughing every day, and loving beyond words! Peace, friends!

Well, that means you have checked off at least one of the three "Ls" for today! Now you need to laugh and live. By the way, do you know anyone alive today who doesn't live every moment? So, laugh and you can rest until tomorrow.
