I often sit in church and ponder what would happen if I started laughing during the invocation, when everybody is crying, and everything is so serious.

Then I get tickled, have to bite my cheek and pinch my arm really hard to keep from laughing out loud.

I cover my eyes and duck my head. Dang it! How much longer can this go on? I can’t contain myself anymore. I’m about to fall on the floor laughing,

And just when I think I can’t keep it in, it’s all over. The organ starts blaring, and people start piling out of their pews, and I look up and smile really big at the first person I see.

Whew, Saved again!
