The smile can be sent
To that lady so old
Who pushes her walker
In spite of the cold
Who heads to the diner
Though slippery the street
And holds to the hope
Some kind people she'll meet.
Or look to that mother
Who reigns the kids in
And single these three years
And no it's no sin
That she should be struggling
The bills and the house
And two jobs both part-time
No thanks to the spouse.
And smile for the young man
So new at his task
And offer kind pointers
If ever he'll ask
He so wants to fit in
And many seem gruff
And yes he has fouled up
The skills often tough.
You see here an ointment
A blessing so dear
And really so simple
And you Friend are here
To offer an uplift
That might change the day
For some who are struggling
In life's fickle way.

The many instances of these opportunities are mind boggling and can be overwhelming, it is a constant flow and an almost daily occurrence one which has simply become a new "norm" and I do not speak of nor write of much anymore. This awareness should not be deemed extraordinary but rather a gift of sight, before one knows it, we are lending a hand and helping within our means and abilities without thinking but instinctively from out of a "new born" inheritance. No we cannot help out in every way but we can search within ourselves and whatever means available to us to assist. We don't always get to hit a homerun but we in retrospect can say that when called to duty at least recognized and acknowledged "the least of these" and stepped up to the proverbial plate. Jesus is pleased and will take it to the next step from where we broke off engagement due to each of ours limited capacity to love. Many times we will miss opportunities or by our own estimations fail. No worries...for we know and have the assurance of Romans 8:28, in this we may find peace and rest. Jesus has no such limitations, however, He is ever teaching and if our hearts are open to Him...learning and growing in ways not by sight but in faith. We must guard and beware of our observances for His ways are above ours and not readily understood, we must trust in Him whatever the challenges before us that we can in fact see...but in keeping of the faith knowing there is so much more at work that we cannot see. The unseen always being the greater of the two.
