Have you smiled today

Psalm 28:7 reads:

“The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.
My heart leaps for joy,
and with my song I praise him.”

Today has been one of those days when I needed to remind myself to smile. I had been trying to post something all day to encourage you beautiful ladies  but the internet had been playing up ( often the way in life as we know it huh?)

So what ever you might be doing today, remember that He is our ultimate strength.  Whether its in ministry, motherhood, relationships, serving, living as a Proverbs 31 wife (eeek) always remember to smile. As you do…I pray that beyond that smile is a heart of strength that comes from trusting in our Lord who protects and guides us every step of the way – even through Leadership!

So have you smiled today?


Let pure JOY be our strength today and always! Lavishing love your way today.
