SMILING

Joan Winifred

🙂 smiles are gifts.

(gifts from fellow-fragile-life (and gifts from God.))

Grateful!! (THANKS for making me…:)

“Perhaps you feel that life’s anxieties give you little cause for smiling. Remember, though, that feelings are usually preceded by thoughts. (Proverbs 15:15; Philippians 4:8, 9) So, hard though it may be, why not try to dwell on positive, pleasant things whenever possible? * Bible reading and prayer have helped many people to do just that. (Matthew 5:3; Philippians 4:6, 7) In fact, the words “happy” and “joy” and their derivatives occur hundreds of times in the Bible! Why not read a page or two each day? Who knows? You too may find yourself smiling more often.”

“[…]do not wait for others to smile at you. Take the initiative; add a little happiness to someone else’s day.” [excerpted Your smile a Gift to Share Awake! No. 1 2017]
