Proof that Jesus had a sense of humor!

Some people think that God doesn’t have a sense of humor. I beg to differ. 
I realized something this week given to me by “the voice of God whispering in my ear, giving me a revelation that extended biblical truth” (quotes to emphasize the heresy. Although, I admit, this entire post should have quotes around it). Anyway, I came to the realization that Jesus was probably the life of the party, that he liked to joke a lot and loved pranks. No, it’s not documented in so many words, but that’s where I come in enlighten you (please send $249.95 check or money order to our address for further “revelations”).

My Experience: The other day, I slipped and cut open my leg while getting out of a boat. When the pain subsided I began walking to shore where my friend Jim and his wife, Diedre, (don’t worry, there must be a million men named Jim married to women name Diedre here in North Idaho so nobody will know who I’m talking about) were standing there watching this unfold. After looking at my leg, I realized that I needed to get to the hospital emergency room. So I said to them, “Can you give me a ride to the emergency room?” To which, Diedre folder her arms, cocked her head to one side and said, “Yeah Right!” As if I would joke about such a thing. This hurt more than just losing my leg the sharks in Lake Cocolalla… well, no, I didn’t lose my leg but if I did, it wouldn’t have compared to the pain of not being taken seriously.

Can you imagine?!! What kind of person doesn’t take such a statement seriously? I’m like so disappointed in humanity. In spite of being mortally wounded (almost), I mustered up the energy to say that, “No, I’m serious,” and then showed her the hole in my leg before regaining some credibility.

Jesus’ Experience: Jesus, having been crucified on a cross to pay for the sins of the world appears before the apostles, alive!! And one of his apostle (maybe more than one apostle but this one was documented), didn’t believe him until Jesus showed Thomas his wounds.

Does anyone see the parallel here? 
Saint Thomas (that has a nice ring to it) probably didn’t believed Jesus (and this is conjecture on my part based on personal experience) because Jesus was always joking around, playing pranks and was clearly the life of the party. There you have it, proof that God has a sense of humor or he would have struck me with lightning by now. No that’s just too obvious. He probably pushed me as I was getting out of a boat because he knew before hand that I’d write this post… I get it, he’s such a kidder. Using omnipotence and omnipresence to play jokes on people. Ya gotta love it.
