Upside Down Frowns

Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been. – Mark Twain

Romans 12:18If 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.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
