Can I Laugh Now? *Encouraging you to see the humor in life’s embarrassing moments.
“Resist him, standing firm in faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 5: 9-11
Premise: Got his hopes up!
*It’s Justin’s junior year of high school and he has a crush on an upperclassman
*He is too nervous to say anything for fear of rejection, so luckily for Justin his crush approaches him one day for advice
*She reveals to Justin that she has a crush on a younger guy and doesn’t know if she should tell him since dating underclassmen is frowned upon
*Justin (thinking his crush is talking about him) convinces her to be bold (even though he isn’t) and go talk to the guy she has a crush on
*Justin sees his crush the next day with a huge smile on her face
Justin: Hey, why are you so happy? What’s going on?
Crush: I took your advice. I go out with Rodney now!
Yeah, I think it’s safe to say that we have all been there at one time or another. Thinking our crush is talking about us only to see him/her with someone else the next day. I feel your pain, Justin!
Be direct! Justin says he ended up being rejected anyway, at least if he was direct and told her how he felt up-front, he wouldn’t have gotten his hopes up.
Justin shares his story with me: Rodney?!
*Extra: I bet you didn’t know that Justin was Ivory Bishop
Our next Laugher learned a valuable lesson about being on time!
“We Must Be Early”
Premise: Better late than never…not in this case!
*Megan’s hard work has paid off and her publication has been nominated for an award
*She and her mom get all dolled up from head to toe and head to the awards ceremony
*They quickly notice that no one is there
*Megan tells her mother, “We must be early.” Megan pulls the tickets out of her purse to discover that the event was actually the night before!
Megan says that luckily she did not win the award; otherwise, she would have missed out on a great experience.
Since Megan is starting to gain recognition she says that she has to pay extra attention to detail! She’s big time but she hasn’t reached personal assistant status yet! Lol. Megan says that she and her mother still laugh about that night to this day. They definitely gave new meaning to “all dressed up with nowhere to go”!
