SO MUCH good.
by Marissa Rubin
Some people just have a way about them that is contagious. I’m sure that everyone knows those folks who have this impassable joy. I am incredibly blessed to have many of them in my life. I envy them. I don’t want to alter my personality per say, but I definitely crave a larger dose of this approach that I believe God calls us to. Sure, I’m a “nice” person and am told this by many, but I feel urged to show the love of Jesus increasingly more. The much-recited scripture in Provers reads, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” -Prov. 17:22 Another reason to be happy…you’re healthier!
Smiling is the absolute best. I can’t help but think of Will Ferrell in Elf…”Smiling is my favorite!” Now he is the epitome of kindness. Seriously though, it makes my night when one of my customers smiles/smiles back at me…you would be surprised as to how many fail to do this. Even worse, some even refrain to say “please/thank you.” Crazy, I know! I am convinced to keep doing good…to “kill people with kindness” as my mom says no matter how much of a “Negative Nelly” a person can be. Take a look/listen…
Let’s be more like this little girl, more like Buddy the elf. Hey, let’s be more like Jesus. Let’s love.
