Life is worthwhile if you will just smile!


Textures by Kim Klassen Cafe: Poetic and Urban

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 there’ll be tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through
If you’ll….
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’ll just….
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’ll just….
Smile

~Judy Garland

Most of the time, life is hard. It just seems like that’s the norm these days. I can’t remember a time when life was carefree and easy. And just when things seem to be smoothing out…BAM…there’s something else that demands our (in)sanity. It’s so easy to just want to throw in the towel and concede defeat.

But then I remember that it’s usually through overcoming life’s disappointments and set backs where we find the sweetest rewards. Little comfort during the struggle, I know. Boy, do I ever know! You too? I hear you nodding your head in agreement. I suppose some things in life are just universal.

It’s here where we see the difference between the weak and the strong; the optimist and pessimist; the person who, when given lemons will think outside the box, trade them in for limes and make Mojitos.

And it’s here where we discover exactly where our inner strength comes from (hint: it’s not Mojitos).

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,for those who are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

Count it all joy, my brothers,when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (James 1:2-5)
