Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart. (Anthony J. D’Angelo, education writer)

The holidays often bring sadness and loneliness. So, it’s a good time to be intentional in sharing the joy of the season. You may meet someone who is having the end-of-the-year blues. 2021 hasn’t been as good a year as they had hoped. Perhaps offering support with an encouraging word of hope—accompanied by a warm smile—may be uplifting and helpful.

When they were discouraged, I smiled at them. My look of approval was precious to them (Job 29:24) What a relief to see your friendly smile. It is like seeing the face of God! (Genesis 33:10).
