When Life Doesn’t Smile Back!

Carefully, I
followed her every detail through the corner of my eyes, as she quietly pushed the door open. I did not want her to
know I was watching. 

With her gorgeous eyes, she stopped a few meters away from
my bedside where I was and glanced at me.

Her tiny feet made an
impression as she took a few steps closer leaned forward and turned her
head slightly so she could look into my eye.
“What was she up to?”
Honestly, I did not intend to offer
her my minutest attention. I was running on tight schedule that day.
But when she touched me ever so
gently, I took my eyes off my laptop and looked down at the little angel. She
gave me a cute wide smile.
I had no choice. My inner
defenses were crumbled, I could not help but throw a smile back at her. Of
course, how could I resist carrying her onto my lap?
The miracle of a baby’s smile!
In her eyes, there was hope,
laughter, joy and peace. Like her, we all give our smile and hope in return
someone would do the same.
The baby’s persistence broke my
urge to ignore her advances.
That same way our persistence
and constant presence, in what we hope for would someday pave way for us if we
just hold on and keep showing up.
Sometimes life never smiles
back. Those times when you crave for the audience of all instead you get one
despite all your efforts.
But we don’t give up even when
life is hard…so hard that it doesn’t smile back.
Your smile is a symbol of hope.
Your smile is a reflection of your confidence in God.
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great
recompence of reward.
We don’t stop believing that
someday things would fall right way they are meant to be.
You don’t
give up, friend. 
keep smiling.
We don’t stop smiling just
because others don’t return our courteous gesture.
We don’t give up our smiles despite
the attitude we receive on the other end.
We hold in us the power to make
that choice.
A choice of hope,
A confidence in a future,
A faith in tomorrow,
A trust in an unfailing God
All in the miracle of a smile.
Come what may, keep smiling
because you know you need it. Someone’s life needs it.
Like the baby, your smile is
irresistible and contagious. Your smile would pass sparkles of hope like tiny
fireflies and shimmering glaze of the future like sun rays. 

life doesn’t smile back, you hold the power within you to keep the light aglow.
The power that radiates from the One whose face shines ever so brightly upon
His own.
