Let's Have a Good Laugh !

When is the last time you and your spouse had a good laugh together?  Laughing is one thing we love to do at our house. Even our 2 year old is in on “jokes”.  One type of joke that we use all the time is: “ I have some good news and I have some bad news”. And then we make up some ridiculous information.  
Another thing we do is laugh at each other. Yes, that’s right at each other.  If someone says something incorrectly that usually get a good laugh. Sometimes if another person gets mad, it usually ends up with both of us laughing so hard we are crying.
It may help that my husband was the class clown and one of the characteristics that drew me to him was his humor. We just love to laugh.
There are some great benefits to laughter. These benefits include physical, mental, and social benefits. You can find more about the benefits of laughing thru this site: Laughter is the Best Medicine.

Do you and your spouse laugh together?  According to “ Love, Laughter and marriage: Why Laughter is Vital to a Healthy Relationship”, here are 5 reason why you should:
1.     Laughter fosters a sense of playfulness
2.     Forges a positive bond
3.     Brings greater perspective
4.     Reduces defensiveness & opens you up to new experiences
5.     Acts as a buffer to stress (see benefits of laughing)

Connecting through laughter diminishes the time you focus on negative things in your marriage or just life in general.

Here you will find Bible Scriptures on Humor & Laughter . We serve an awesome God who knows what is good for us, for he made us in his own image. 

I hope that this week you and your Spouse can focus on the positive things in your life. Have a good laugh together and enjoy one another. 

Marriage is  a labor of  love, it takes work, time, and commit to allow it to grow.   I hope you are able to use these insights to create and/or maintain your "Loving Lasting Marriage". In addition, Pray together and Seek God together if you are seeking your Loving Lasting Marriage.

  1. Hi Shalasha! First of all thanks for stopping by Curious Wisdom! Next thanks to you and your family and all the other families who make sacrifices for the well being of our communities! Lastly:) Thank you for this post! Life is so crazy and sometimes feels disconnected...last night my husband made a comment that had us both in tears rolling on the floor. I loved it!

  2. Thanks for stopping by Loressa,

    I agree that with the daily life we can easily become disconnected from our spouse. Especially when they work long hours such as my husband and many husbands do. Another way we can keep in touch and share a laugh is through texts, e-mails, or letters. I often leave my husband a post it note on the bathroom mirror, send a text to uplift his spirits at work, or just to let him know that I am thinking of him.

    Thanks again !

  3. Hi Shalasha! Thanks for stopping by Happy Moms, Happy Homes and leaving a comment! I'm now following your blog through GFC. Laughing is like internal jogging.
