"25 May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you."
Numbers 6:25

I've always heard that smiling uses less muscles than frowning.  I've also
heard that smiling is good for us health wise.  They say that smiling slows down the heart and reduces stress!  That in itself is enough reason for us to smile...a lot!!

In church many years ago we used to sing this little 'ditty' as we would greet one another...Smile a while and give your face a rest...Raise your hands to the One you love the best...Then shake hands with those nearby...And give to them a smile!  I used to think it was funny but honestly, there are lots of people in church...and everywhere else...that don't all!

That makes my heart sad.  Smiling is good for us.  Not only is it good for us health wise, but it can change our whole attitude!  And...if we give our smile away (ie:  smile at someone else) it could lift the spirit of another person.

We want God to smile on us...we want Him to be happy with why not give that same thing to those around us?  

Smile a while...give your face a rest!

  1. I know that I don't smile enough. I've actually been thinking about this a lot lately. So today I am going to smile more! :)
