Laughing Jesus

When I was in my friend, Joy's, office one day, I noticed a sketching on the wall, and I gazed at it for a long time.  It was a drawing of Jesus laughing.  Now, we don't see a lot of paintings or drawings of Jesus laughing, so I really liked this one.  We can imagine in his lifetime He laughed, perhaps at the wedding at Cana, or when children surrounded him to hear him teach, or maybe when He went fishing with his friends and they caught a bounty of fish.   I wish there were more pictures out there showing the fun side of Jesus as well.  I liked this so much, that my friend, Joy, gave it to me.  I wanted to share it with you, and wish you a Happy Easter, friends.


I found this saying many years ago that I attached to the sketching to remind me always to laugh.



love to you on Easter,

Happy Easter! I like Proverbs 15:13, which always makes me smile...A glad heart makes a cheerful face, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is crushed. And I also think David was smiling when he danced before the Lord in 2 Samuel 6:14. Have a blessed day!

So unusual to see this 'portrait' but I suppose we are victims of tradition. What fun to see Jesus in this way, and Happy Easter to you all.

We often don't think of Christ laughing, but the creator of JOY must have laughed, He just had to!

May joy fill all of you, every day!

Happy Easter Monday Dear Sheri and Daughters,
Thank you for this beautiful reminder of not only Christ's love and protection but also His joy!
In our hurry scurried sort of world it is often times easy to overlook His longing for us to embrace the joy and laughter that He has offered us.
I do believe this is just what I needed to begin my week with the right frame of mind.
Much Love,
Jemma

Sheri the drawing of Jesus laughing is intriguing and captivating, thank you for sharing it. The George Bernard Shaw quote is one of my favorites.

Yes, I believe Jesus laughed too and I love this image. He is all about joy and it's about time some folks realize that sitting around with a sour face does NOT demonstrate who Jesus was! Thanks for sharing this!

I never thought about Jesus laughing, but I am sure he did now that you mention it. And my first thought was at little kids.
