Today’s post is a light-hearted true story about a breakfast with an egg.
(No chickens were harmed in the making of this blog.)
Yesterday morning I was thinking about a joke of the day. You may not know this about me, but I love a good joke. I can never remember the good ones long enough to ever tell them, so I rely on a daily email that I have subscribed to where I receive “Jokes of the day”.
Now typically I make the kids breakfast before they go to school, but that morning I was waiting on my son’s breakfast request. When he came downstairs and asked if he could have a fried egg sandwich, I agreed.
So picture this: I am standing at the cooktop, preparing to make him his egg sandwich, while actually thinking about a joke for the day. I cracked open the egg to put it in the hot frying pan, but as I did, it squirted onto my shirt. I smiled and said out loud, “The yolk’s on me!!” (the yolk/the joke…) True story!
What have we learned today, and how can we apply it?
I would say to enjoy those moments in life that can be mundane or monotonous. I would say have a little fun! This life is worth living!
“A glad heart makes a cheerful face…”
God must have a sense of humor, because He made us. He made us in His image. That means He too has a sense of humor. We all look funny. We all smell funny. We are all just goofy, dorky, and sometimes awkward. That is the beauty of us being so different, yet so similar. Surely God smiles when He sees us totally bewildered by His plans, and laughs when we cannot fathom why He would bless us. I think He takes delight in our light-heartedness too.
“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them. The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.”
So take a moment and laugh at yourself. Don’t take this life so seriously! God is in control, so loosen those reins a bit, maybe even let go of them, and look around you. There is so much to appreciate. Be silly. Smile!!
Food for thought: “Gracious words are like a honeycomb; sweetness to the soul and health to the body.”
One way to tell if an egg is cooked or raw is to spin it. If it spins easy, it is cooked. If it wobbles, it is raw.
Eggs age more in one day at room temperature than in a week in the refrigerator.
A large hen lays an average of 300-325 eggs per year.

And here is my joke of the day:
The following is the conversation between Albert Einstein and Charlie Chaplain in 1930….
Einstein: What I most admire about your art, is your universality. You don’t say a word, yet the world understands you!
Chaplin: True. But your glory is even greater! The whole world admires you, even though they don’t understand a word of what you say.
