Delicious food – you know the meal that you hope lasts for an eternity – yet it disappears so quickly as you shovel it in as though being timed in a food eating contest and unless someone filmed your eating habit – you wouldn’t think twice about it – ha!
So here we were enjoying delicious food and time together with my daughter as well as Chris and Hadasha.
Time escaped us when we realized the restaurant was closing for the evening. Upon leaving, we walked out together sharing a hilarious story. Meanwhile, in the parking lot, hovered by the star lit sky – walking each other to our vehicles – when the inevitable moment happened…I can’t even tell you that the story being shared was even that funny – yet it was their reaction to the story that caused this inner tickling to set off the laughter that was unstoppable – laughing with everything in and out of me got me laughing even harder when that horrific feeling of knowing it was coming forth with full force, I screamed, “Stop talking! Nooooo! Helllllp!” As they screamed, “Nooooooo! Don’t peeeeee…” that is when the levy broke, the stream sounded and my bladder was unstoppable as I stood there in my adorable outfit on the slanted blacktop when the geyser gushed forth all the while watching the look on their faces as they watched in horror as my pee was traveling at warped speeds toward them. What made it far worse was to see them running from the stream as hopeless laughter caused my bladder to be completely emptied. Suddenly, everyone’s screaming turned to stunned silence as they had only heard the stories – but this time they experienced the horror first hand.
As I laugh thinking back on that evening – I LOVE THE humor of God as I just read, “Anyone who believes in Me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, “Rivers of living water will flow from his heart…” (John 7:38) – Can you hear me giggling?
May you experience JOY that overflows and travels at warped speeds toward you that overwhelms you – allowing it to overflow on others causing strength to annihilate your every part even if your laughter is stronger than your bladder…
