Reasons to Smile

by Sr. Hope Therese, O.Carm.





Smile because we have the Father, Spirit, and Son.
Smile because there is some goodness in everyone.
Smile because of gifts you have always possessed.
Smile because you always have been richly blessed.
Smile because it can brighten someone's day.
Smile because it enlightens the Lord's way.
Smile because everything created has a purpose.
Smile because it causes happy feelings to surface.
Smile because everything is a grace.
Smile because Jesus prepared a place.
Smile because the Lord is your guide.
Smile because the Lord will provide.
Smile because a failure is never a loss.
Smile because Jesus died for us on the cross.
Smile because you have a free soul.
Smile because Jesus paid your toll.
Smile because things happen for a reason.
Smile because all bear fruit in due season.
Smile because God gave everyone free will.
Smile because He is here with us all still.
Smile because it could always be worse.
Smile because you are not in a hearse.
Smile because you have people who love you.
Smile because you have angels above you.
Smile because there is always a reason to be glad.
Smile because God will always makes good come from the bad.
Smile because there is nothing to fear.
Smile because the Lord is always near.
Smile because the winter will pass.
Smile because in spring grows the grass.
Smile because all is meant to be.
Smile because God loves you and me.
Smile because it looks good on you.
Smile because God's promise is true.
Smile because friendships have been grown.
Smile because mercy has been shown.
Smile because you have made it this far.
Smile because of how happy you are .
Try to smile even when you are feeling blue,
Someday happiness will be sure to find you.
You are only a loser if you are a quitter,
The trials of life can make you better or bitter.
Sadness is just a state of mind,
While joy is a state of being.
When you frown, you look down and you are blind.
When you smile, all the while you are seeing.
