The street was very busy but she saw me. I didn’t see her. As a matter of fact I saw no-one because my mind was too busy re-calculating the cost of the items I purchased in the supermarket. I was wondering where my money went so quickly.
So when I bumped into her I was so frightened. I quickly said sorry and stepped out of her way. But she gently took my right hand and shifted me to the side of the road. I didn’t resist her because she was very old and I didn’t want to be rude so I kept quiet. Then she used the tip of her finger to lift my chin so that our eyes were focused on each other.
Then she said in a shaky voice,”Please I’m begging you….” I didn’t allow her to finish I immediately said, “oh..” and started opening my purse. She quickly shook her head and said, “No, my child…no money. I am just begging you please to smile, whatever just happened, God still loves you, he is in control.”
I was touched.
So this is my message to you too. God still loves you!
You see, yesterday I had no idea that my facial expression after leaving the supermarket was so ugly. I allowed the system of things to stole my smile. But thanks be to God, a woman of love saw it and made me aware.
The truth is that we just cannot conceal how we feel sometimes no matter how we try because our thoughts will reflect on our faces, whether they be good or bad.
That is why we have to train our minds to think good at all times. Sometimes it’s really hard but we have to try if we want to be approachable and have a pleasing personality.
Yes, God is in control of everything and he still loves us no matter the circumstances. So when we make it a point of duty to keep focus on his love we will be more able to face our problems and the world with a smile.

To all my other followers and potential followers please watch your thoughts, guard them and keep on smiling through thick and thin.
Have a great day…God is in control!
