A famous chapter of, I think, Psalms-- having to do in some vague way, as I recall, with the path to salvation -- includes this interesting passage:

"And a new day will dawn
For those who stay long,
And the forests will echo with laughter.
(Does anyone remember laughter?)"

The parenthetical query is not regarded by most scholars on the subject as genuinely canonical. It is generally thought to have been planted in the margin of a manuscript by a bored monk to relieve the tedium of transcription.

I think it fits rather well, though, don't you?

Mark V.

I remember the bible verse when Jesus told the Apostles not to hinder the children from coming to him. They must have brought joy and laughter to Jesus because the innocent way they get themselves into situations or sometimes what they say can warm the heart and even bring a chuckle. Plus joy being a gift of the Holy Spirit in my opinion opens one up to laughter as well.
