Let yourself smile (or laugh) today! You will feel better.
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

When daffodils make their appearance after a long winter, not only do they announce spring’s arrival, but they bring cheer. Who can not help but smile?
Jesus said: “In this world you will have trouble. But be of good cheer! I have overcome the world.”
That means God has the final say.
We don’t have to wait until that day to be cheerful. We can be cheerful now.
Cheerfulness can only come when we know God is watching over everything. It gives us a sense of relief when we know this.
Even in the depths of despair, don’t be afraid to smile. It will cheer your heart and help you heal.
