‘The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace.’ Numbers 6:24-26

I like the idea of the Lord making His face shine on me. This means He will be showering me with blessings. He will also be turning His face towards me; therefore i will receive the warmth of His smile.

We are in a period when we can’t smile. Well, we can smile but no-one will see it because of our masks. So we have to make our lips smile as we say kind and helpful things to people. We can make our eyes smile so that they shine out Your love. But what we really need is smiling hearts, then we will radiate smiling all round.
