Psalm 143:8

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.

What makes you smile?

The little things in life...those things that just make a day that much better...the things that make you smile.  What are they?  Let's think on those little gifts today...little gifts from a big God who loves you.  Here are some of mine...

  • birdsong first thing in the morning
  • the smell of a crisp autumn morning when the air is just a little chilly and clear
  • hearing others laugh
  • the sound of a cello
  • singing at the top of my lungs
  • the moment the sun tips up just over the horizon and paints the sky bright
  • the smell of good food cooking
  • the feel of waves brushing over the top of my feet
  • the warmth of the sun on my face
  • the voice of a good friend or beloved family member on the phone
  • praying for someone else
  • knowing someone is praying for me
  • a card in the mail - NOT a bill!  haha
  • the sweet smile of a baby
  • the feel of a child's hand in mine...trusting
  • sharing time talking and laughing
  • warm socks on a cold day
  • quiet time on the patio with a cup of coffee and my Bible
  • the sound of a stream or a fountain
 Just making the list makes me smile!  And there are so many more things that can be added to it.  So how about you?  Smile today and know that those moments are precious gifts to hold and remember!
