Have you ever just “caught” yourself smiling? What were you doing? Maybe you were watching children play.. Listening to their laughter. Or.. Maybe, you were eating a yummy piece of chocolate cake.
There’s lots of things that make me smile.
When I’m editing pictures that I’ve just photographed… I catch myself smiling.. Because of the little surprises and moments that I captured.
When I’m writing.. I often catch myself smiling.. I guess it’s because it brings me joy.. To use words in this way.
When I’m holding a baby… I often catch myself smiling.. Because the reality of the “miracle” sets in.
When I’m photographing people and places… I find myself smiling.. Because of the pure joy I get from capturing moments with my camera lens.
When I’m watching my girls do anything that they enjoy.. I’m smiling on the inside and on the outside too. Because… Seeing my children happy makes me smile.
Sunsets… Sunrises…. Beautiful skies… All of these things created by God makes me smile!

I want to make my Heavenly Father smile. HE makes me smile everyday. When I don’t smile.. It’s only because I’m being selfish and worrysome and forgetting to count all of my blessings. God never fails. HE supplies all of my needs. HE provides lots of opportunities to smile.
