My aunt’s vinegary puss set me to laughing. I couldn’t help myself. She didn’t have to say a word. Her face was clear enough!
Expressions cross our face and some are more pleasant than others. Are we hurt, happy, crying, foolish or surprised? Having a bad hair day or questioning some idea or other?
What if we are sad, mixed up, angry, or talking from both sides of our mouth: think we know it all? Surely we are not pouting, proud or sticking our tongue out?
It would be so wonderful if we kept some of those expressions to ourselves. I don’t think I have to point out which ones.
I, Daniel was deeply troubled by my thoughts, and my face turned pale, but I kept the matter to myself. (Daniel 28:8b, NIV)
Prayer- Father God, may our faces, attitudes and hearts display your peace in the midst of any troubles. Amen
