Proverbs 15:13 (Word on Wednesday)

Free printable Bible memory flashcards, including Proverbs 15:13

Have you ever met somebody with a painted-on smile? You know the kind — it involves the mouth, but doesn’t go all the way up to the eyes.

Clowning Around

A joyful smile isn’t like that. It isn’t fake or forced or only for show. A genuine smile starts from deep within the heart and spills over onto the face. There’s no stopping it.

Clowning Around

What’s more, it’s contagious.

Proverbs 15:13

Here’s something to smile about

Last weekend, our son David married a girl with a contagious smile like that. She comes from one of the most joyful families I’ve ever met.

She and her mom and sisters used to dress as clowns and entertain at birthday parties. What’s more, she can even juggle and ride a unicycle!

So, unbeknownst to Bonnie, we smuggled a few clown noses into the reception. That way, we could give Bonnie a proper welcome into our family.

The noses may be phony, but the smiles were 100% authentic. We couldn’t be more excited about having this precious girl marry our son.

(I promise to post some “real” wedding pictures — sans the rubber noses — in the near future. It was a lovely ceremony, and Bonnie made a beautiful bride.)
