I just want to praise and thank the Lord for giving us the ability to laugh.
 
Can you imagine what our lives would be like without laughter?   I shudder when I think about it.   What a dark, empty, boring, dreary world it would be.  Simply put, it would be horrible.
 
Proverbs 17:22 says, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones." 
 
You know what?  Laughter (a merry heart) really does doeth good like a medicine...
 
The other day I had a horrible sinus headache that just wouldn't go away no matter what I tried.  On top of that, it was the last day of filming for Rathdrum Willie, and ALL of the boys were over.  It was a mad house.  They were filming the final chase/fight scene so they were making a ton of noise.  I couldn't find anywhere to get away from all of the banging, crashing, and yelling, so I curled up on the couch in our living room, prepared to be a martyr for the rest of the day. 
 
Thanks to the mad scientist and his two henchmen (Brett, Matthew, and Matthew C.), I didn't have to spend the rest of the day with a pounding pain in my head.   I can't tell you what it was that made me laugh because that would be giving away part of the plot, but it was so funny I just had to laugh, headache and all.  I laughed so hard, I cried, and by the time I was done laughing, my headache was completely gone.
 
Sounds unbelievable, but I've experience the same cure several times when I've had a headache, although it doesn't work 100% of the time.  You can even ask Mrs. A - she'll back me up on this.  (not from personal experience, but she's seen it happen to me before) 
 
I don't have any proof, but I think it's because when we laugh it relieves tension all over our body.  Whatever the scientific reason, I'm so glad that God created us with the ability to laugh our headaches away:)
 
So, next time you have a headache, try finding something to laugh at.  Can't hurt, and it might help:) 
 
 
P.S. In case you're having trouble finding something to laugh at...
 
I can't believe I'm actually posting this, but, well, here it is...
