Love as an Action #devotion #poetry


girl on the move

 May I be motivated to do good

 my attitude be cheerful today

my feet be swift to aid another

kindest words from my lips would I say

may my mind not stray toward evil

eyes mirror what is  in my soul

that I would accept others as a child

generosity spill forth for  poor, young and old

*

I just got back from vacation and along the way watched people.  What I observed:

With so little effort we can bring cheer and goodness to others as we cross their paths.

How often do you hear a child’s laugh, see her smile and not feel less bothered by the day?

Small kindness can make such a difference in a person’s day.

Isaiah 52:7
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
1 Peter 3:9

Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing.

1 John 3:18

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Nice little blessing/prayer you wrote there — that we could all be a bit more compassionate to everyone – regardless of who they are. The 1 Peter scripture is pretty powerful.

  2. Not only do small kindnesses brighten the day for others – we feel better ourselves! Loved this, Leslie. I love your heart of compassion. LOVE the precious photo of the small girl running towards all her tomorrows.

  3. Yes, may I be motivated to do good! What a beautiful prayer you have written, which we could benefit from saying every day! So true that it takes so little to bring joy to others…if only we try just a little bit! I enjoyed your reflection & your poem, Leslie.
