What Makes you Smile?

Sunflowers make me smile.

Birds flitting around the yard make me smile.

Wild bunnies eating my clover make me smile.

Seeing my children blessing their friends and each other makes me smile.

Seeing good times that my nieces and nephews are having on Facebook makes me smile.

Completing my to-do lists makes me smile.

Enjoying a good meal with friends makes me smile.

Seeing someone smile at me makes me smile right back!

Seeing God’s mercy and grace in my life and in other lives makes me smile.

Hearing about answered prayers makes me smile.

What makes you smile?

Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute! Philippians 4: 4-5 (The Message)

  1. Watching the baby robins following their parent around the yard eating bugs.
    Pushing the grandkids on the circle swing — their favorite.

    Love the Message translation.

  2. Your photos and your blog make me smile, and seeing this verse in this translation makes me smile! It ties in perfectly with a conversation I just had this week and I am going to copy it and share it with my friend. Thanks!

  3. Love this post because it is fun to see what makes you smile – and they are things to smile about -yet so often we take them for granted. I had to look up the verse in another translation to be reminded of which one it is. Yes, rejoice . . . and keep looking for things to smile about.
