The Gift of a Smile

I've been feeling very insecure lately. Sometimes a little sign from God can bring me reassurance...

There are times
When words are unnecessary.

We can convey all of our
thoughts and feelings
by the expression on our faces.
Our love, hopes, dreams, prayers, joys and sorrows
reflect out to the world around us.

Of course, the one expression
that everyone enjoys seeing
is a simple smile.

When the smile is genuine,
when it starts in our hearts
and spreads to our eyes,
when it is shared with another
in genuine gratitude and love,
it is the only thing that is needed
to raise the spirits
of the person with whom it is shared.
It has the power to bring
heart-warming joy
that will be remembered forever.

Thank you God for the gift of love
in a smile.

  1. Love it Anne. Good reminder what a smile can bring to a day. I don't know if I ever thought of it as a gift from God but it certainly is!
