10 Reasons To Smile!


1. Smile. It changes your disposition
2. Smile. Jesus loves you so much!
3. Smile. because you are you
4. Smile. You might brighten someones day
5. Smile. Because"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." 
Philippians 4:13
6. Smile. A smile is the most beautiful thing you can wear
7. Smile, because you were designed to smile
8. Smile, because you have so many reasons to
9. Smile. Because you are better off that most people in the world 
10. Smile. It confuses people!

Lately, I have been finding it hard to smile. Life can be hard and its easy to just become depressed and down. My mom has really encouraged me to just keep my chin up and smile! Thanks mom! So I guess when life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Jesus says: These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16: 33. So be the fruit loop in a world of Cheerios and just be happy!
Pass it on,

Welcome to Reasons To Smile!

Hey there y'all!
Welcome to my new blog! Let me introduce myself! :)  I am a 14 year old country girl writing under the pen name of Clara. I love to reading books, writing stories on my 1940's typewriter, being outside, (preferably barefoot in the summer:) taking photos, pen palling my wonderful friends, reading and learning about Gods word and lots more! I am a Christian who is passionate about modesty and wants to please the Lord in everything, although I mess up ALOT! For this blog I plan to post some of my short stories, fun posts, photography and more! I hope you enjoy your stay here at Reasons To Smile!


              "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass."
Psalms 37:5
In Christ Alone,
Clara
