Smiles Count!

, by

Sharing lunch with a close friend, you smile from the inside out and say to yourself…

“We connect and I love it!” And the key work is?  Right: connect.

The idea of “connection” can reflect various  levels of our feelings of personal gratification in one form or another.

  • Connecting with the right team and making an impact, we smile on the inside as it happens.
  • Enjoying a special dad/daughter time out together where both connect, mutual enjoyment is shared.
  • Arriving at our favorite family vacation spot — such as a beach location that is deeply appreciated by all — each member of a family connects and experiences their own special moment of enjoyment, release, lack of pressure, anticipated fun or whatever they associate with their being in that location.

Take Time

Take time to connect: truly connect.

Connection with your purpose, values, desires, goals, dreams and vision can mean a great deal to us at the heart level: a great deal.

Remember: smiles count and connecting with the most important people, desires and “reasons” of your life can deliver a ton of smiles to the front door of your life.

Ask yourself key questions such as:

“Am I connecting with my most cherished values in life… at this stage of my life?

“Am I making the connections I would love to make with those I love?”

“What immediately comes to mind when I think of the idea of ‘truly connecting with life’ and moving forward?”

All The Best To You!

May you and those you love experience very meaningful times of connection this week… and always.

The Lord also led him to serve as the Director of Internships at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, PA where he served for over 20 years. Lee loves to write, has a strong desire to be a positive influence for Christ in our world, and is passionate about family. And speaking of family, he and his wife Sherry (who served as a Director of Elementary Education for many years and recently retired) praise the Lord for being married 44 years, their 3 daughters and son-laws, and 7 grandchildren! Lee and Sherry would say: "We've been abundantly blessed."
