Ann Voskamp: Sometimes smiling is an act of defiance 

Standard

Just exhale (right now) …and Smile. Feels better, doesn’t it? Practice it again: smile. “Fix my eyes on God— soon I’ll be praising again. 

He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.” Ps.42:5 MSG. 

Sometimes smiling is an act of defiance against what’s pressing down hard. Sometimes smiling is an act of sheer bravery. 

Sometimes smiling in brokenness is how we re-member: We are the Resurrection People & there is more happening than what seems & we practice our faith. Practice Smiling. Practice Joy. Practice counting gifts. For it’s in praising our Savior in all things that we are saved from discouragement in all things.
