Laughter is good medicine for the soul. The next time you are in a public place, listen for the sounds of laughter. We often hear the voice of God in birdsong, the wind, falling water, the crash of waves on a beach, and other natural sounds, even in silence, but God's voice is equally present in the voices of people laughing and enjoying themselves. Thank God for the ability to laugh, and when you hear laughter, wish the laughers continued happiness.
