Did you know that simply smiling could lift an entire demeanor, raise attitudes, and impact others? Being joyful, despite circumstances, elevates our perspective and causes us to rest from stress and worry. We are more likely to talk to someone we don’t know if they are smiling.
Proverbs is a great place to find some amazing & inspiring verses. Let’s look at 15:13 & 30:
A glad heart makes a happy face;
a broken heart crushes the spirit…
A bright look brings joy to the heart,
and good news gives health to the body.
We look at these verses and wonder how such a simple expression can enable a contagious effect on our own spirits & bodies but also on others. We have the opportunity to bring grace, joy, peace and brightness to someone else’s day! That’s incredible.
