Something funny happened today….
I have a funny story that makes me look silly, but it will make you laugh I think.
I put on my shoes this morning and I was surprised to find the right shoe was such a tight fit. I took my foot out and wiggled my nylon around and put my shoe back on. It felt a little better, but not much.
I couldn’t imagine why my shoe felt so terrible. It had always been very comfortable. I took my foot out again and wiggled my nylon once again and put my foot back in. Not much better.
Finally I thought there must be something in my shoe. Sure enough when I put my hand in it I pulled out a big red grape. It must have fallen in when my shoes were in the car after I changed clothes to go to KOK. Was I ever surprised. I was expecting some paper or a tissue, but not a grape. It was not squished and I can’t imagine why, but guess what? Without the grape in the way, my shoe fit perfectly.
In the future I will know to check the first time if my shoe doesn’t feel good. The joke is on me. I am the crazy one, but it made me laugh, a good way to start the day.
Father, thank you for laughter, the best medicine in the world. Amen.
