The reflection we see in a mirror tells a lot about who we are inside, but often we mask what we really feel or think.

As we age, the scars of life wrinkle and tug at the corners of our eyes, our brow and the areas around the mouth and neck.

When we smile, everything turns upward, as if looking to God.  Eyes light up, teeth  or lack of them – appear, the entire face livens.

We frown and muscles sag and fall, turning ever downward towards ourselves.

How much better to put our focus up rather than inward or down.

The answers to a happy face don’t lie within us or anything here on earth or from the depths of hell.

Stretch those sagging faces – renew and refresh each living cell in your skin!

Enliven the tissues – create laugh lines instead of the other kinds.  Look up to the one who made your smile.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
