3 Reasons to Smile

This has been a hard week. Tragedy has struck a nearby community and I'll just say it has hit a little too close to home. The story has been all over the news and it just keeps getting worse. The circumstances surrounding this event have been so awful...simply beyond comprehension.

The sun came out today. I have so much to be thankful for.

And I have many reasons to smile, but these three are the sweetest.

Whatever trials you are facing, remember that they can only be overcome by the One who has overcome the world. You are not without hope. You matter to God. Cling to His hand and ask Him to help you. He will be faithful.

And remember to hug your spouse and kids today. Tell your family how much you love them. Treasure each day and count your blessings. Thank God for them. Life is but a breath.
In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. ~Job 12:10
