Looking Up

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

Louise Gibson

 

Life presents many challenges from birth to the grave,
But lift your thoughts to God above
He promises to save.

 

God fashioned us in our mother’s womb,
so I am certain He had a plan.
We were designed in His own image
to serve our fellow man.

 

When I was a child, I thought as a child-
striving always to please.
It took a lot of challenges
to set my heart at ease.

 

My heartfelt wish, as I was growing up
was to be a caring soul.
I desired all humanity
to make loving others their goal.

I know it is unrealistic
to expect Heaven here on earth-
But wouldn’t it be wonderful
if every soul felt its worth?

 

Reach out and “touch someone”-
A word of encouragement, or a smile will do.
Your kindness will be rewarded-
It will all come back to you.

    “If every soul felt its worth” Oh – yes. How wonderful that would be. What else, really, would we need? Would that help the poor people who suffer in Syria – that the government would come to its senses? Would that quell the bitter lies and tales told by our own government officials as they jockey for position as prime minister? Would that sooth the soul of those who suffer mental illness? I love this post and it has indeed set the tone for my day. Thank-you.
