The pastor preached a very short sermon one Sunday morning. He explained: "My dog got into my office and chewed up some of my notes." At the close of the service, a visitor made this request: "If your dog ever has puppies, please let my pastor have one of them!" God intends for us to smile. Far more muscles are used when we frown than when we smile. So why overwork facial muscles? Laughter is as much a part of the heart of God as are tears. This book is a collection of devotions built around some of the lighter fare of life. Each devotion presented here begins with a smile--a brief, humorous reflection. Each includes a Scripture reference. And each concludes with a "sendoff"--a prayer, challenge, or thought for the day. Highlighted with original illustrations by "Close to Home" cartoonist John McPherson.
