Laughter: Medicine to the Soul of your Relationship

OK, this joke is really starting to wear on us, but our eight-year old continues to tell it and he says, “They’re looking for you.” And you say, “who” and he says, “The squirrels! They think your nuts!” He just thinks that’s the funniest thing in the world and so does little three-year old brother. And it is so funny just watching their humor and it’s very contagious and intimate. That’s what it is like marriage. When you do something intentionally to make me laugh, I just feel so connected with you. There is great healing that comes in laughter. Friend, think about this in your own relationship. Study your spouse’s funny bone. What will make him or her laugh?  It really is like medicine to the soul of your relationship.
