Smile Power Day

Good day to all of you, and Happy Smile Power Day. Of all the unique days I think this one is going to be one of my favorites.

Smiling can make friends; catch the eye of a possible future partner; comfort someone in a not so pleasant mood; help land job opportunities; inspire others to smile; and can of course be self healing. In a time of a pandemic; unemployment; and mass shootings, mankind needs all that smiles we can get.

A few months ago as I was making deliveries I switched on the radio to the Christian radio station K-Love. This station and the other Christian radio station Q108 have been the meditation for me on the road for the last two years. One day while listening to K-Love I heard someone say that studies show that smiling is good medicine. At that moment I had to have been feeling the literal heat of the sun on my head; sweat causing my shirt to stick to my body. Wishing I was a little more close to finish than I was. Heeding the words of the radio, i willed myself to smile. Though the labor stayed the same, my mood for the rest of the day was a little better.

If you have something to smile about- a birthday; anniversary; promotion; new job; or just feeling feeling a gentle breeze in this dangerous desert like weather; go ahead and give a grin or put those alabaster whites on full display.

Even if you’re having a day that is going as slow as a failing phone or computer, smile anyway, for a smile can flip your mood from like a spinning tornado to somber rainy evening

What do you have to smile about?

Whose smile is your favorite?

Remember too that smiling is biblical. It’s perhaps the easiest thing biblically which you can apply in your day to day life. If you’re unsure about God, this simple gesture can be the thing that helps you better understand Him.

“A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

By David Harris

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
