The Power of a Smile

Angela Kunkel
Angela Renee Kunkel



  A smile is formed by flexing the muscles at the sides of the mouth. Some smiles include a contraction of the muscles at the corner of the eyes. Some even say that smiles without the eye contraction may be perceived as insincere.

Smiling denotes happiness, joy, amusement, sociability, pleasure, and is even used as a form of communication. Many studies have been done on the effects of smiling and among the top ten reasons to smile everyday we find is that this action makes us more attractive to others, helps relieve stress, and has been shown to be a natural anti-depressant.

Scattered throughout the Tanach, in various versions, translators chose to use the word “smile”. Interestingly enough, the Priestly Blessing (Numbers 6:24-25) from the New Living Translation reads, “May the L~rd bless you and

  protect you. May the L~rd smile upon you and be gracious to you. May the L~rd show you His favor and give you His peace.”
