Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a Message Minute.

She's beautiful, absolutely stunning, and she's got me wrapped around her little chubby fingers.  My sweet daughter, Clara, is 8 months old, and every bit a source of joy in our lives.  

I come home from a long day's work and upon seeing Clara, I immediately choose to smile, partly because I want her to associate her father with positive emotions, partly because she is God's beautiful creation and she deserves a smile.  When she sees my smile, little Clara, gives me that big, wide, mostly toothless grin back.  That look of delight then really evokes a sincere smile from me.  Then she smiles bigger, I smile bigger.  She laughs, jumps, and giggles.  I do the exact same. 

And it all starts with a smile.  Remember Proverbs 17:22 today which gives important wisdom in our time, "A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."  

Smile at a stranger, smile at a kid, smile at your loved ones.  Smile because it’s the most important clothing accessory you'll put on today.  Turn that frown upside down knowing that it will be medicine to you and those precious people around you.  You'll be glad you did.
