Smile Wins My Heart

“Smile and the world smiles with you. Knock and you go alone.

For the cheerful grin will let you in where the kicker is never known.

Growl and the way looks dreary. Laugh and the path is bright.

For the welcome smile brings sunshine, while a frown shuts out the light.

Sing and the world's harmonious. Grumble and things go wrong, yet, all the time you're out of rhyme with the busy bustling throng.

Kick and there's trouble brewing. Whistle and life's skies will no longer be gray.

And the world's in tune like a day in June and the sorrow will melt away.”

The Bible says that “A merry heart does good like a medicine.” Proverbs 17:22. Also in Luke 6:38, we read, “What we give will be given back to us.” When you give a smile, you will receive a smile. When you give of what is great expense to you, your reward will be great. Your father in Heaven will see to that.

I received this in an email. Supposedly they are the words of the Rev. Paul Killingsworth, pastor at Yuma First Assembly.

My cares are always lightened when I see a loving smile. And this little grandson of mine certainly has that smile. It is pure joy.
