Smiling AND A TRIP TO THE STATES
I think a person´s best attribute is their genuine smile. Their worst attribute is their false smile.
When salesmen are under pressure, they can´t smile naturally. Superstitious people say that when they are having a loosing streak in sales, they have ´commission breath´. People can smell desperation they say. I believe it´s actually just that the salesman is faking a smile, and people can detect it. A salesmanager once told me that when I was under the gun, I didn´t smile, I bared my teeth! NO WONDER MY SALES SLUMPS WENT FROM BAD TO WORSE.
Personally, I think if someone can´t smile, they shouldn´t be in a profession where they have to deal with people. If someone frowns at me, and it ruins my day.
I knew when Winnie started having her thyroid problem, the first thing that went was her smile. She tried to smile, but it wasn´t natural. True believers smile a lot because they have a peace that passes all understanding. Images of sour pussed religious fanatics are not what comes to mind when I think of True Believers. Winnie my wife, is a true believer. When Winnie smiles at people, they know she loves them, with God´s love. BTW Winnie´s smile is back, and WE are all elated! Christians are not like what Hollywood betrays. Hollywood betrays mentally unbalanced people. True believers follow Paul´s admonishment: Philipians 8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. 9The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
FOX NEWS has it´s own reporters. Christians are not reporters. OUR job is to dwell on the good, NOT TO REPORT THE BAD. Wars, rumors of wars, problems, are all old news. The new news is the Good News of Jesus, God´s love and mercies are new every day. We are to love others, and to look upwards! I peaked ahead at the end of the BOOK. we have a good thing coming. AND we are going to have to pass through fires to get to them. It´s all part of the program. We are not going to change anything, except by helping others to know Christ and His goodness, and to forgive others.
When God´s peace is with someone, they smile.
