Quoting Quiverfull: Smile or Be Tired and Fearful?

by Nancy Campbell cross posted from Above Rubies – Fill Your Home With Smiles

A downcast face will lock you into tiredness or anxiety. A happy face will ignite a spark of joy in your heart. A miserable face will sink you into self-pity.

Put on a smile, even if it is the last thing you feel like doing, and you will feel your heavy burden lift.

Proverbs 15:12 MLB says, “A happy heart makes the face look sunny.”
