I firmly believe that God has a sense of humor, and laughter is one of His gifts.
In that frame of mind, I find that occasionally I desire to update familiar scriptural sayings.
“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.”
21st century addendum –
And then children shall arrive. And the man and his wife shall see each other only in passing as they take the children to school events, soccer, doctors’ appointments and all manner of things. And they shall wave to one another from their car windows as they pass one another on the highway, and though they share a single bed, they shall each fall into it exhausted each night.
