3 Nephi 19:30

"And when Jesus had spoken these words he came again unto his disciples; and behold they did pray steadfastly, without ceasing, unto him; and he did smile upon them again; and behold they were white, even as Jesus."
3 Nephi 19:30

This is cool... it is neat to think of Jesus smiling at these people, and beyond that, that the smile had such an incredible effect upon them... it purified them.  I think that it seems like what happens to us when we please God... that our efforts, combined with his, can make us pure.  Almost all of it ends up coming from God, of course... but receiving the smile is a great place to be. :)  Can you imagine... Jesus, who did everything for us, who has power over every element and who helped to create this beautiful world... smiling at you?  Smiling can change people's moods, it has incredible power over your own attitudes as well as those you smile at... and then think of that power magnified by a billion or more and you know what was happening to these people... their mood and hearts and minds were all affected and happy... and mostly due to a smile. :)  Let's try the power of a smile today. :)
