God's Laughter

I continue my reading of Harnish's Easter Earthquake. In it, he shares Eugene O'Neill story of Lazarus telling of how he was raised from the dead by Jesus (it's in the play, Lazarus Laughed):

When Lazarus describes his experience...'I heard the heart of Jesus laughing in my heart...and my heart reborn to the love of life cred 'Yes!" and I laughed in the laughter of God.'"

I've never really considered what the experience must have been like for Lazarus, other than to think it must have been confusing.  I love the image that God's laughter is what brought him to life.

Think of who in your life could be "brought to life" through the laughter of God that you share with him or her.
