Toothy or toothless,
Faint or recognizable from miles away,
Silent or audible, youthful or well defined through age,
It speaks, soothes, invites, supports, and can help sustain one’s soul through otherwise debilitating situations.
It welcomes others into its space, its territory, even in a crowded room.
It says, “You’re okay, and I hope the best for you.”
Everyone can Smile.
Even the one whose face has been paralyzed due to an accident or illness can Smile in their heart, unless their heart is paralyzed.
The Smile reveals a person’s heart.
One of the simplest ways to encourage, and be encouraged.
Medicine for the soul, an embracing arm around the shoulder.
Ready and willing to run the risk of disappointment, the Smile opens the door to reconciliation and restoration.
God created the Smile.
Hope revealed in the flesh.
Born of the Virgin Mary.
Christ the Savior.
