Each step, one foot ahead, is a success,©02/23/2017 Carol Welch
over apathy that could in bondage hold,
fear that effort fail to move or bless;
lack of motion contributes to the cold
Praise to Him Who can what we cannot:
energize our inner force to move,
to brighten up the present time and spot,
and generate some needed warmth and love.
Then, let the step's purposed direction be,
to where the need, concealed or seen, should lie,
and open eyes of mine to care and see,
action that betters things as days go by.
The heart, oh let it be, that warmly feels,
both appreciation and a fond concern,
that lubricates kindly action's wheels,
gratefully receive or help them turn.
