When the milk goes sour

I'm afraid my sense of humor is evaporating. I crash in two ways, both of which I've already done today: I either laugh and joke with someone but cross a line and end up pissing them off, or I stop being able to laugh and joke about something because I see the brokenness behind it and am suddenly sick to my stomach. I don't want to be serious all the time, either (that, apparently, pisses people off too—another thing that's been brought to my attention today). Neither do I want to reduce serious things to crude jokes. So it's just uncomfortable.

Thankful today for friends who share a vision and excitement for what God is up to, for His mission that moves forward and changes the world. Chatting a bit with scillymonster this morning recharged batteries that had been suddenly and unexpectedly depleted. He gives me what I need even when I'm being a bonehead.
