The birthday of Christ will arrive whether we are happy or sad, rich or poor, loving others or embracing hatred toward those who are not like us. Our Savior will offer His love, mercy, grace and peace to our hearts whether we are willing to accept them or not. He never changes – His mercies are new every morning. We are offered a new day with no mistakes in it. Will we accept this gift at Christmas? I will accept it with open arms and pray that you will too.
As we accept these wondrous presents in addition to the presence of God’s Holy Spirit in our lives, may we endeavor to share all of it with others. There is another gift we have been given and need to be eager to share – it’s the gift of laughter!
Yes it’s a scary world we live in. This is the first time in history I’ve heard the term terrorism thrown around as readily as the word smile. We’re in the last days and we need to hold on to God’s strong, unfailing hand. What can you do to make a co-worker smile and laugh today?
Humor can help people de-stress, but it can often be offensive. Approximately 70% of those polled reported that workplace jokes they’d heard centered around making fun of co-workers based on factors like age, sexual orientation and even weight.
Is there any hope for good clean humor in the workplace, or are we all doomed to have long faces and live in fear of offending a co-worker? Well… let’s see what we can come up with.
This could only be offensive if you made the middle too big – LOL!!! Of course, if it’s a Santa type deal – that should not be offensive… ‘cuz the St. Nick – he’s got a belly – let’s admit it! There’s always an “artist” in a group of co-workers – let them use that hidden talent to make a great look-alike face with sharpies.
These are just a couple of ideas to have a little fun in the workplace this Christmas. Thanks to Pinterest for the cute photos. I believe we can be fun and funny without being nasty and offensive in the workplace. Let’s be honest – nobody wants to be there – and nobody wants to be offended by our co-worker’s attempted stab at humor. If you’re going to do something funny – make it good – but think of the golden rule, do unto others and you’d have them do unto you! 🙂
