Your face will freeze like that!

You know that children don't often filter their thoughts before they speak them.
I was once again witness to this yesterday.

There is a man at church that the kids hadn't seen much of lately. He is a nice kind man. He will joke with you, tell you stories from his life and laugh with you. But for some reason today he looked a little sour.

Anna had seen him in the morning service and again at the evening service. After looking at him Anna said "Mom, is his face always going to look like that?"

It was laugh out loud funny, but since we were in church I just laughed softly.

You know what I told her don't you?

I got to use the "your face will freeze like that" lesson!

It brought back to mind one of Abby Jo's sayings: Remember to be happy because you never know when someone is falling in love with your smile.

So let this be a reminder to you.
