Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been. – Mark Twain
Romans 12:18 – If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. (NIV 1978)
My Musing – A song I remember from my childhood included the phrase a smile is just a frown turned upside down. Peace with others will come much easier with smiles than frowns. And usually, whether we smile or frown does indeed depend on us. Even if the others are frowning, our smiles can help turn those frowns upside down.
My Advice – Is not any better than today’s comic. Be like the little children, just try giving a smile away. And make sure the wrinkles of growing older are where smiles have been, not frowns. In fact, make sure the smiles are not “has been,” but still are. Just because we grow old does not mean we have to stop smiling.
