I grew up with a mindset that you can have fun with humans, but you ought to be totally serious with God. After all, He can do anything to you that He wants.
But I know Him better now and have come to appreciate His sense of humor. And He might be the only One who appreciates mine, I'm not sure. The jury's still out on that one.
Today I had a funny little thought I shared with God. (Not that He isn't always "in" on my head chatter .) I was too sick to go to school. Slept almost the whole day, but still had an appetite. As I was nibbling on some crackers at noon, I was thinking how good it was to sit in a quiet house, away from the noise and confusion that my classroom becomes at lunchtime--and several other times throughout the day.
"Lord," I said to Him, "when I asked for a job filled with glamour, did You think I said clamor?"
