Lighten Up

The cheerful heart has a continual feast.
                          —Proverbs 15:15

Chuck Swindoll has collected some laws that he finds downright hilarious. Here are a few of them.

In Danville, Pennsylvania, fire hydrants must be checked one hour before all fires.

In Seattle, it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon of more than six feet in length.

An Oklahoma law states that a driver of “any vehicle involved in an accident resulting in death shall immediately stop and give his name and address to the person struck.”

The village of Lakefield, Ontario, passed a piece of noise abatement legislation that permits birds to sing for thirty minutes during the day and fifteen minutes a night.

Every life encounters problems that defy frivolity. But the flip side is that a perpetually joyless Christian is an oxymoron.

“A cheerful heart is good medicine” (Prv 17:22).

Lighten up.

A sense of humor helps you cope with
the difficult times and enjoy the good times.
