It all started last Sunday at Church. I was taught from an early age that it was not okay to laugh in Church. I got that reminder a lot because I get the giggles a lot. This week in Church during the sermon Marvin was pointing to his sermon notes in which he wrote "trails and temptation" instead of "trials and temptation" that is all that it took to set me off in an uncontrollable laughter. Soon I stopped and concentrated on the rest of the sermon. I just knew Pastor Barry had saw me. Then during the invitation song Marvins new phone started to vibrate and then it made it a loud noise, the funny part was the lady sitting next to Marvin turned to him and said "that was not my phone" once again I burst into laughter. I finally got it under control but felt really bad. I wrote Pastor Barry a note today apologizing because I felt so disrespectful to him and to God. This is what he wrote back:
"I did not notice you laughing in worship, but please know that laughter is always welcome in worship. I know you and am certain you would never do anything to intentionally disrespect anyone. Thanks for your concern and all is fine!"
I felt a lot better but I still know I have to keep it under control.
So this morning it started again for me, I get to work and shut of my SUV. I must have hit the panic button and panic is what I did because I did not know how to get it off. First I hit the unlock button, then the lock button and then I hit the panic button again and the was the magic button. Needless to say my heart was still pounding hard when I got into my office.
During my lunch break I was doing my online banking when I noticed a large check that cleared but I did not recognize the amount. My heart started racing as I realized I had wrote my mortgage check for the incorrect amount (it was actually my checkbook balance) It was a simple fix when I called and made the remaining payment over the phone.
So I did get my laughs in today.
