While I'm enjoying a particularly busy week, please enjoy one of my favorite posts from the archives!
I spotted this little leftover snowman after last season's Christmas shopping frenzy. When I showed my daughter the picture, she said, "Notice he's still smiling!"
If a dented clearance-sale snowman can keep his smile, we all have many reasons to put on a happy face.
"We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed" (2 Corinthians 4:8-9).
Smile when you are bent, bruised and damaged; because you know you are still valuable to God.
Smile when you feel alone, abandoned and rejected; because you know you still have God's company.
Smile when you are unsure, afraid and uncertain; because you know God still has a plan for you.
Keep your smile because you are keeping your faith, and know God smiles on you!
Be happily blessed today!
