Out of the Whale's Belly
I find the story of Jonah and the Whale amusing, even funny, though it makes several serious points, mainly that God wants to save every human being.
It inspired Carl Sandburg to write the following poem, which echoes my own experience:
"If I should pass the tomb of Jonah
I would stop there and sit for awhile;
Because I was swallowed one time deep in the dark
And came out alive after all."
