There’s the beauty of rain,

As it sheets across the way.

The beauty of snow,

As it blurs a winter day.

And the beauty of hail,

As it balls – bouncing, on the roof

There’s beauty, There’s God, There’s proof!

Your mouth tells a lot about you.

Your mouth, when vocal, “…out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Mat 12.34), is a peep-hole to your soul. Your mouth “speaks” when it doesn’t speak – silence can be a perfect response. You mouth smiles – a friendly smile (to family or stranger) which is appreciated. Your mouth sends a clear message when it refuses to smile at the shady story. And perhaps the best non-verbal use of the mouth is the smile which involuntarily reaches your eyes, and then crosses language/cultural barriers, where words are futile.
