No act of kindness,
is ever wasted.
The gift of encouragement
Should be given each day---
Pass it out freely
And in gentle ways.
There's no need for ribbons
To make it look grand---
Just the simple encouragement
Of a kind, helping hand.
Give Me A Kind Heart
Give me a kind heart that will endure,
One that's strong and secure
To help someone along the way,
May this be my goal every day.
Let me lend a helping hand
To someone whose life has not gone as planned,
Reaching out to one in need.
May this be my daily good deed,
To provide a guiding light
For someone lost in the dark of night.
Let me take time to care
For someone experiencing despair.
Whatever I do, everywhere I go,
Your Will, Dear Lord, let me know.
Let Me Be A Light
Let me be a light, O God,
That shines for all to see;
If someone needs to find the way,
An example may I be.
Of love and kindness and brotherhood,
Of all that's gentle, of all that's good.
~Theresa Mary Grass
It is the history of our kindnesses
that alone makes the world tolerable.
If it were not for that, for the effect of
kind words, kind looks, kind letters...
I should be inclined to think our life
a practical jest in the worst possible spirit.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
