Joyce Vaughan Byars — The thought of Jesus Christ laughing…

The thought of Jesus Christ laughing probably is not thought of too much, but it should be.  Amidst the trials of this World, in Him we have ultimate joy, and peace.  When He walked upon this Earth, it is written that He cried, more than once, and though scriptures do not depict the Christ laughing, it is safe to say He did, for He had all human characteristics…His strength was in what He did with them while He walked among us on this Earth.  Once I was told of a little boy about 5 or 6 who was dying, I believe it was of cancer.  He was put down to rest and he went to sleep. The end was not thought to be very far away, and while he was sleeping, he sort of put his arms out, and rolled a little onto one side, then drew his knees up somewhat and started laughing and tilted his head back a little…he continued to laugh for a short time, then he just went limp, and he died.  His mother declares that Jesus Christ came and picked him up in His arms, and carried him to Heaven.  She believes that he was being tickled on the tummy and made him laugh while he was being picked up.  That could very well be true…we have no way of knowing how God handles things in the realm that we have yet to step.  But we know we are safe with Him   Jesus Christ gives us His Peace,
