Giving a smile to someone is so easy to do. You have to get your mind off your problems first, and think of others. Remember, there is always somebody worse off than you - and it may be the one you smile at today! You might make their whole day and encourage their heart to keep going, just through a simple smile.
Why not try working on that this week and see what happens! Just smile at everybody you see. People at church, out in public, at work, etc...
If ANYBODY should have a reason to smile, it is a Christian! But sadly, through circumstances, even they are caught dragging their lower lip sometimes. If you see one of those, give them a smile too! Because, we sure don't need to kick our wounded! Amen?
"These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full." John 15:11

A smile costs nothing, but gives much.
It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has none to give.
