Smile! Jesus Loves You!

Proverbs 15:30 A cheerful look brings joy to the heart

Psalm 126:2-3 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad.

Job 9:27 If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint,I will change my expression, and smile,’
Being a believer means that we should possess that content joy that the world doesn't have.  Will life be easy? No.  Will we always "feel" happy? No. But put a smile on your face! Joy is a fruit of the spirit that we are to possess, and that is something that comes from Him, not our circumstances.
Our good friend, George always says that he wants to tell people "So, you're a Christian? Why don't you tell your face?". Always makes us laugh, but it's so true. When you are unkind or stand~offish, or won't speak to others around you, even other believers, you have no light to shine.  Always smile and act like the woman of kindness and grace that we are instructed to be. None of us are perfect, or always have a good day, but we can always greet each other with a smile and a "Hello" ~ it really isn't that difficult.  
Remember who you are in Christ and what He has done for you. That gives us the biggest reason in the world to smile and be kind to everyone around us.

After The Storm

We haven't had a very snowy winter, and have had bare ground, until yesterday.  We got 2-4 inches of snow.  This morning the blue skies looked pretty stunning in contrast to the white!  By noontime the sun had melted all the snow off the trees.  Amazing how much warmer the days are already getting.   As it melted, it sparkled like diamonds.  Quite a beautiful day!

Loved the look of the clouds above the mountains and the fog lifting out of the valley in this picture.

Living a Legacy for Christ

My maternal Grandmother ~ Grandma Stacy, was probably one of the biggest influences in nurturing my faith and my walk with Jesus.  She did not have an easy life, but she was always "real", positive, and loved Jesus and shared her love for Him and what He had done in her life with everyone she could.
When I was 8 she brought me to her Vacation Bible School with her.  It is there that I was led to Christ by her pastor.
Grandma Stacy has since gone on to be with the Lord.  I miss her daily.  I miss picking up the phone to chat. She always answered with such a melodious hello and ended with the same melodious goodbye.  I can see her sitting in her chair listening to her Christian music with her eyes closed like she was picturing heaven, and her hand and foot tapping to the tune.
On Sunday, her Pastor and his wife visited our church.  I was able to bring the tiny Bible that I was given by him that day I asked Jesus into my heart.  My sweet hubby snapped a quick picture of us.
Feeling blessed!
