Did Jesus Laugh???

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, to laugh. My best of friends know how much I love to laugh and how much I long for it. There is something so refreshing about a good laugh. Now....I could do without the whole crying while laughing...or the nearly wetting the pants laughing...(yes...I just said that!). But I love to get together with people and have a great time laughing. Sometimes about totally nothing at all.
So after an entire evening of LAUGHING last night....I wanted to know if Jesus had ever laughed as hard as I did? Many scriptures say "Jesus Wept" but none say "Jesus Laughed".

I challange you to help me find places in the Bible where Jesus laughed! Or where you think He may have had a sense of humor.

I know Jesus was sent here and was merely a man....without sin! In Hebrews it is 'For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin.' I think he did all the things we do...yet...without sin! So I'm just convinced that he laughed...just as hard as I do! Why would God have created laughter if He hadn't experience the joy of laughter Himself. It's such a great thing.
I think the Lord wants us to be filled with joy and laughter. I love that song..."The Joy of the Lord...will be my strength".

I think joy and laughter is SOOO much better than the alternative! I can imagine a life without depression...but I can't imagine a life without LAUGHTER!!!!

I think Jesus experienced all of the emotions we did.

It always drives me crazy seeing those old Jesus movies where he's emotionless.

Take care!
