What’s in a smile…

What’s in a smile…

Grandfather had a favorite saying for spreading joy and happiness with the family. You can see God in every smile someone makes because anything that makes you smile is God.

There’s a lot of truth in that statement for a smile will light up your world along with the world of someone who just happens to be on the receiving end of that smile. Not only that, smiles are contagious and seem to spread the light and love to everyone. There’s just something about a smile that makes another person smile back.

Imagine how peaceful the world would be if everyone could just be secure enough to share their light and love with everyone they met. That’s the magic of life, sharing your light and your love with your neighbors and since we are all neighbors in the world, there is a lot of love out there to share.

A smile cost nothing, but gives much. It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes by a moment but that moment can last forever for someone who is need of a lift up.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship.

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and is nature’s best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

So give someone your best smile today and have them pass it on.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
