ANGELS ARE AROUND US
It only takes a little time
To ease the ache in someone’s heart.
It only takes a touch or two
When someone’s world is ripped apart.
It takes a gentle soul to know
The words to say that soothes the hurt
Felt deep within a wounded child
When others laugh and they are curt.
It only takes a moment now
To bow the head and say a prayer,
“Jesus keep her safe from harm
And show her love is everywhere.”
It takes a second in your day
To give a smile and say hello.
A child will show you gratitude
And she will change more than you know.
I saw this for myself today
When someone gave what she could give
To a small child who’d lost her way.
She gave her skills so she could live.
It was done with a kind heart
And gently so that few could see
She was intent to give God’s love
To a small child and set her free.
