Nice job with the topic in this clever and entertaining entry. Thanks. God bless~
I so enjoyed this story. I think you did a great job. I found myself leaning in as I read it. My son is at Duke getting his Masters in Divinity and was asked to speak the message at his sister's wedding. This would be his first attempt at a public sermon. He had said to me, as soon as I get my first laugh, I'll be okay. I couldn't help thinking about that as I read your story. He had a couple of intentional jokes but I'm sure he wouldn't have been relaxed after receiving the chuckle that you described. I think there are many messages in this delightful sermon. Learn to laugh at yourself is definitely one. For me, however, I heard how God can take an embarrassing or painful moment and change it into something beautiful that glorifies Him. You did just that.
