And He answered and said unto them, "I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."

Encouragement

There is a room inside my heart
Dark
No windows
A small light above
A little door that lets me in and out.

I sit alone there
in the darkness
without sound
listening.

I venture out the door
to give
to serve
to meet needs of others.

I have been told
that I have
the gift
of encouragement.
of lifting up the fallen.
of bolstering a sagging spirit.
of taking a hand and holding it.

It is more blessed to give
than to receive.

I sit in my silent room
and I wait
for a gift
that never comes.

this reminds of the old Jimmie Stewart movie (really old) I believe early 50's. He thinks his life is useless and tries to commit suicide and an angel shows him all the good he has done and why the world is a better place because of him. Rewards will always come. A few years ago I had a tall good looking young man walk up to say "I would like to thank you" I said why? He replied "I lost 150 lbs because of your example" I didn't even recognize him and I had know him for 10 years.
I walked away with a smile in my heart.
