You would need a warehouse for all the testimonies I could give to you about Jesus' sense of humor.
My mind is always picturing Jesus and me in our daily walk as we talk with each other or share a meal, etc., but this one time; the first thing that came to my mind when I saw your site was as follows.
I was in the hospital for a very simple "in and out" hernia procedure. In at 6am and driving myself home at noon; that is how simple it was to be, but that never happened.
I had already been to the ER of the hospital 2 days in a row because I was having terrible pains, nausea, etc. and could not sleep. They told me I had acid indigestion! Whoaaaaaaaaaa, I KNOW what acid indigestion is and that WASN'T it for sure, but they insisted it was and sent me home. I wasn't suppose to have the hernia procedure for another 2 weeks, but something kept nagging at me and I asked my doctor if we could do it earlier because I felt it might help whatever was wrong with me.
Reluctantly, [because of his busy schedule] he agreed. Praise the Lord....... when he made the incision he saw something "unusual" and thought he would explore. That exploration turned up a gangrenous gall bladder.
Well, that cost me a week in the hospital, and "lucky to be alive" were words I heard many times that week. The pain was pretty terrible so I was given some major meds and then.....I got pneumonia [I suspect from a nurse who was always sneezing and sniffling around me] which created complications.
Then I got blood in the bowels and if that were not enough, the meds I was being given were over-dosing me. I remember a doctor coming in and poking me and me grouching at him because he was hurting me and him ignoring me totally [thank God] because, although I didn't realize it at the time, I was on my way out of this world.
The next thing I know I feel this warmish to hot sensation start from my stomach and simultaneously run through both hands and up my arms, as it was also running up my chest. When it got to my face that was the last I remember until I awoke 2 days later.
when I first opened my eyes I saw a sign on the wall, which a friend had put there, that said...."CHOOSE LIFE" and I didn't know at the time, that that was in Deuteronomy; all I could do was cry and cry. A nurse came in, with the doctor, just then, and explained what had happened to me and how they thought they had lost me and about the coma, etc.
When they left I cried and cried more and I got so angry, I was yelling at Jesus, to myself....what happened? You promised you would never leave me....where did you go huh? Tell me that.... huh? I was screaming at the top of my lungs, only inside, and then I stopped crying because I felt this coolness come over my face, and I heard a voice say, "what do you MEAN leave you? I've been here all of the time, but.... where were YOU??? huh,? huh? Well we both started to laugh out loud, and a nurse, hearing me, came into the room to find me laughing and laughing with tears running down my cheeks and asked me what was going on. I finally stopped laughing and said to her, "oh it was just a private joke between Jesus and me."
I have loved telling this story to many people because it is not only a testimony to His faithfulness, but proof of what I tell people all the time, "if God didn't have a good sense of humor, then I wouldn't be here right now!"
God Bless You....Aloha,
