Smile and the world smiles with you, cry and you cry alone. This isn’t necessarily true but My Mom thought so; at least she quoted it to me when I cried. The truth is more like this poem by Spike Milligan.
Smiling is infectious you can catch it like the flu.
When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.
I walked around the corner and someone saw me grin.
When he smiled I realized I had passed it on to him.
I thought about the smile, and then realized its worth.
A single smile like mine could travel round the earth.
So if you feel a smile begin don’t leave it undetected.
Start an epidemic and get the world infected
God bless you and keep you, God smile on you and gift you, God look you full in the face and make you prosper. (Numbers 6:24-26, MSG)
Prayer- Lord, thank you that you smile blessings on us every day. Help us be the kind of people that pass both blessings and smiles to others. Amen.
