Key to kindness

Wipe someone’s teary eyes;
Life’s too short to merely cry.
Reserve a genuine smile for those
Who can’t see past their stubby nose.
Call up a friend who’s very ill;
You never know how they might feel.
Acknowledge someone’s panicked look
Or maybe pick up their scattered books.
Say “thank you” to workers behind the scene;
Without them life would be so mean.
There is no need for black and white;
Add vibrant colour to the dim light!
Shake hands with dignity and pride.
Don’t be afraid, there’s nothing to hide!
Go against the worldly flow,
Be yourself and just say “No!”
Tiny pebbles create everlasting waves;
What’s your legacy? What will you engrave?
Volunteer your time to serve.
Spread empathy, joy, and verve.
Write a simple, encouraging note.
Jump on board and rock the boat!
Paint a vivid picture like the heavenly sky.
It’s not too late! The time draws nigh.

    Galatians 5:22,23-On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.
