Wholesome silliness is a joyful taste of time (not a waste)

Find inspiration.
Give inspiration.
Live inspiration.

Wholesome silliness is a joyful taste of time. It’s not a waste of time. Wholesome silliness is meaningful because it opens the heart to spontaneity, creativity, and unseen truth.

Wholesome silliness lubricates life so that we’re not overwhelmed by the seriousness of it all. When silliness, spontaneity, and kindness are brought together, joy happens.

When the freedom to be spontaneously silly is underused people are seldom overjoyed. Don’t miss out on the silly side of life. Wholesome laughter is a is a joy enhancer.

To feel better about life, playfully enjoy some good, clean silliness every day. If you sprinkle your life with kind, playful silliness, you’ll be happier.

Joyful silliness isn’t an abnormal reaction to life. I believe it’s a gift from God. The meaning that you ascribe to something will determine how it makes you feel. Some thoughts you originate. Some thoughts you encounter in your mind. It’s important to know which is which.

Sober silliness
Isn’t an oxymoron.
It’s good, clean fun
That too many people miss.

Making a silly face
Until it makes you smile
Can make any place
Feel better awhile.

Here’s some bonus thoughts that are serious, but perhaps better understood with a little bit of silliness:

Profanity stifles creativity by keeping a person stuck on overusing a few worn out words.

Life is full of design, therefore full of purpose. (Design by definition is purposeful.)

If words have meaning and purpose, surely the people who express those words do too.

Harmful obsessions matter. If you don’t resist them and overcome them, they’ll eventually fully possess and distress you.

The accumulation of money is a deceptive net that has nothing to do with a person’s worth.

Who wrote the code for your DNA? If it was random, why can’t computers randomly code themselves?

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

    So right. There’s a lot of wholesome silliness between me and my wife, and I think it strengthens our marriage. There’s lots of laughter in a happy home.

      My wife and I go back and forth between wholesome silliness and Spirit-led seriousness. My mother used to say, “You too are either laughing or crying.”
