Each day that we are alive our countenance should reflect the peace and
joy that is in our hearts. We are to go forth in life filled with the joy
of the Lord showing and sharing all that God has filled us with. The Lord
Jesus calls us the light of the world who are meant to be shining beacons
of hope letting all know that there is an Answer to every question in their
life. We are to show our love not only because the Lord commands it, but
also because that is our way of showing God how grateful we are to have Him
in our lives. Without God leading and guiding our life, how lost would we
be? Life would be much more difficult to go through without having that
assurance that God is right there by our side leading and guiding our
steps. He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother and has promised
to never leave us nor forsake us. Be encouraged to let your outer being
reflect what your inner being possesses. Go forth in life with a positive
attitude; smiling, encouraging and sharing God's love to all who are
hurting and in need of His touch. (Matthew 5:14-16) (Luke 6:30-36)
I hope this message encourages and inspires your heart to see the joys that
surround you. Don't believe the lie that good does not exist. It exists
all around us, but we have to pay attention to see it.
I have had a day full of angel smiles today, and it isn't even noon yet.
The one I got from the beautiful girl in the wheelchair made my whole
morning brighter. It had a joy in it that flowed right from her lovely
soul and into mine.
The angel smile I got from the baby boy in his Mother's arms was so sweet.
It had only two teeth, but was accompanied with a waving hand and sparkling
eyes that caused my own eyes to sparkle with delight as well. The one I got
from the kind, old gentleman warmed my heart with its caring. It made his
weathered and winkled face seem more handsome than any model's and reminded
me that happiness can shine all the way to your last breath and your last
There were many others as well. It seemed like each person I passed today
was a joyous angel in disguise with a smile to share with me. Each one
made me smile even more myself until my soul was filled with peace and my
heart sang with joy.
I am sure too that all the unseen angels around me were smiling this
morning as well. I am sure that they were smiling when they saw the
warmth, kindness, love, caring, and happiness that were passed along from
smiling face to smiling face and from joyous soul to joyous soul. I am
sure that they were smiling when they saw the light of God shining so
brightly and being shared in so many lives this morning.
I hope you have a glorious day full of angel smiles, today and everyday of
your life. I hope that you see the wonderful love, gentle caring, beautiful
peace and glorious joy behind each one of them.
I hope too that you smile back at all those special angels in disguise. It
is, after all, our love, our joy, our laughter, and our smiles that help us
all to be Children of God and one with the angels.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:
John 15:11-13 Jesus says “These things have I spoken unto you, that My Joy
might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is My
commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love
hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
Psalm 37:23-27 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he
delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down:
for the LORD upholdeth him with His hand. I have been young, and now am
old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging
bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. Depart
from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.”
Matthew 7:12-14 Jesus says “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that
men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the
prophets. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad
is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in
thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth
unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Matthew 5:16 Jesus says “Let your light so shine before men, that they may
see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
