In the Beginning, God made Laughter 2

He made it for Moses
When the sheep raised their heads in
Confusion at his stutter
He made it for Miriam
When she danced on dry land as
A sign of liberation.
He made it for Little David
When Saul offered to make him the
youngest lance corporal
He made it for Goliath
When he first glimpsed the cause
Of impending rigor mortis
God made laughter for himself
When his children on earth
Took themselves too seriously
And He gave it to Jesus
To share with his friends
To use in his stories
To praise in young children
To bring to the sad

So, we dare not, in our wisdom
Doubt that God inhibits humour,
Nor condemn him to be dour
Like some bankrupt undertaker.
From his Spirit issues joy,
And that fruit is our healing
