Smile! One Size Fits All!

A smile is a beautiful thing!

Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. ~George Eliot

Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your countenance.

Psalms 89:15

"The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light"

Matthew 6:22

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~Mother Teresa

A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

Proverbs 15:13

It takes only seventeen muscles to smile but forty-three to frown.

~My Grandpa

"A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones."
Proverbs 17:22

"One who smiles rather than rages is always stronger"

Japenese Proverb

The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

If someone doesn't have a smile, give them one of yours!

I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.


"Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart"

~anthony d'angelo

"Happy are the people whose God is the LORD!"

Psalms 144:15

A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime.


Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous;And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Psalms 32:11

(Don't like to shout? I guess the next best thing would be a smile!)

It is almost impossible to smile on the outside without feeling better on the inside.


What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered alonglife's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

~Joseph Addison

Remember even though the outside world might be raining, if you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile back at you.

~Anna Lee

A smile is as infectious as the flu, or the common cold. The only difference is a smile makes people feel better, not worse!

If I Marry

If I marry: He must be so tall that when he is on his knees he reaches all the way to heaven. His shoulders must be broad enough to bear the burden of a family. His lips must be strong enough to smile, firm enough to say no, and tender enough to kiss. Love must be so deep that it takes its stand in Christ and so wide that it takes in the whole lost world. He must be active enough to save souls. He must be big enough to be gentle and great enough to be thoughtful. His arms must be strong enough to carry a little child.

Only You!

Dusty my soul tonight.
Earth has been dear.
Bewildered, I come to You,
Father God, hear.
Idols that charm me,
dreams that allure,
pains that alarm me,
suspense to endure,
memories that linger,
thoughts that ensnare,
a heart that is aching,
all crumpled by care,
unsatisfied, restless,
scarce able to pray—
everything, everything
take it away.
Only You,
none but You,
Jesus alone:
ashes the rest to me,
songs with a groan,
take them each one away—
mind not my tears—
lift me above this earth’s
joys and its fears,
give me Yourself alone—
nothing beside—
so will I be with You,
-Ruth Bell Graham
