Season for Nonviolence: Day 2

Day 2: January 31

The thought for today is SMILING.

Everyone smiles in the same language. ~ Unknown

The shortest distance between two people is a smile. ~ Unknown

Mother Teresa said, “Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of Love; a gift to that person.” Smiles cost nothing to give, yet their value is immeasurable. It’s amazing how a smile can change someone’s day. It changes not only the recipient of the smile, but the giver as well. It lifts each person physically, mentally, and emotionally. Thich Nhat Hanh wrote that a smile is the most basic kind of Peace work. When you connect with another by way of a smile, you plant the seeds of Peace.

Today, I will take the initiative to share a sincere smile with each person I encounter. As I offer this gift, I will silently bless it with the knowledge that I am planting the seeds of Peace.

About Rev. Rebecca

After 30 years of trying to avoid God, I finally gave up playing Jonah and answered Love's call to service by becoming an ordained New Thought minister. Since that day in 2007, I've counseled a lot of people, performed some weddings, been a publiic speaker, and done some non-profit board work. Opportunities for service are presenting themselves in new ways for the coming year and I look forward to more of Love unfolding in my life.
