How I Know I SMILE To Much...

Because pictures don't lie (unless they have been photo shopped), right?

I've noticed lately...in pictures taken of me, that I have some major "CROWS FEET" in my eye area.  I'm talking MAJOR!  I also have a smile wrinkle on both sides of my face, as well as under my nose!

Isn't it funny...as we age...that the way we live our life can sometimes we shown by just looking at our face?  I do not like wrinkles, nor the fact that they are becoming prominent on my face...however, I am glad that, if I am going to have them, at least they are from smiling & not frowning!  At least I've spent a majority of my life, up to this point with a smile on my face!

Does that mean that my life has been perfect?  NOPE!  Does that mean that I've never suffered stress, hardships or frustration?  Absolutely not!  It just means that sometimes, despite life's current jabs, I CHOOSE to be joyful & I guess I happen to show it with my face!


Nehemiah 8:10
Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”


What about you?  
When someone looks at you...as you age...what will your face tell as the story of your life to that point?
