Humor and Humility

Okay, so you do enough public speaking, you’re going to say a few things that don’t come out the way you expect, and that happened this week in St. Louis.

Yes, it did. You were teaching an acrostic and you said the “A” stands for loyalty.

I didn’t know what everybody was laughing at.

I couldn’t gain my composure because here you are the professor, and it was obvious that was not what you intended to say.

“A” stands for approval not loyalty, right?


You know, that kind of reminded us of something.

I love your humility. When you bring that gift of humor and humility into our marriage, and keep me laughing, it is the most intimate experience we could have.
