We cannot control the beauty of our face, but we can control the expression on it. (John Maxwell motivational speaker and author)

People are most often identified by their appearance. We recognize their face, even though we may not recall their name. But it’s the expression on the face that gives us a least a hint of how they’re feeling or what might be their current attitude. If we take Maxwell’s comment to heart, we could make a big difference in what others feel just by a smile.

As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the real person . . .. A glad heart makes a happy face. (Proverbs 27:19; 15:13)
