Life does not always give us a reason to smile but I always remind myself that happiness is a choice.
Life is not about us, life is up to us.
Not only does smiling slow down the heart and reduce stress, but we actually do look better and friendlier when we smile.
Smiling can add a little yellow to a grey day. We just have to be hopeful enough to notice and grab onto opportunities of happiness in our goings on.
So today, from my heart to yours, this is a smile for you in the form of a blessing:
May dear Christ Jesus bless you and keep you,
May He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you,
May He turn His face towards you and give you peace.
We are alive today because dear God isn’t finished with us yet.
