“One word or a pleasing smile is often enough to raise up a saddened and wounded soul.” Therese of Lisieux
A smile. Such a simple gesture of the mouth. A sincere smile (you know, the kind you can see in someone’s eye’s), can say so much.
- Welcome, I’m happy to see you
- It’s okay, I understand
- I feel happy
- Can I help you?
- I’m approachable. Come talk to me
- I’m confident
- I enjoy spending time with you
- You make me happy
- I love you
The Oxford Dictionary says a smile is “a pleased, kind, or amused facial expression”. Even if you don’t feel like smiling, smile. You will soon start to feel good. Go ahead…try it!! 🙂
What is your smile going to say to others today?
Genesis 33:9-11 (NLT)
But Jacob insisted, “No, if I have found favor with you, please accept this gift from me. And what a relief to see your friendly smile. It is like seeing the face of God!”
