Just a drop . . .

Just a drop  . . . 
brings beauty
reflects the sun's light.

Just a drop of love and kindness . . .
brings sunshine
reflects the Son's light.

Just a drop . . . 
a smile
a pat on the back
"Can I help you?"
a note
a call
a prayer
a hand to hold
a shoulder to lean on -
just little things
that mean so much.

Maybe a drop or two
of His blood would have been enough.
But He gave all.
He gave every drop
 for me
for you.

Show me, Lord, where I need to sprinkle your love.  
Open my eyes to the opportunities and needs around me.
Help me to "drip Jesus."

Note:  One pastor I know, Pastor M. Perkins, closes his written messages with those words:  Drip Jesus - thus the quotation marks.

Your poem was basically my prayer as I walked yesterday at sunset! Thanks for putting it in beautiful words.

Did you write this?? I just LOVE it! May I use it on our church Prayer Line? I would want to give credit to whoever wrote it.

Glenda said...

Yes, Ginny, I wrote this and you may use it! You may use anything I write . .. and my posts will be my writing unless I give credit to someone else. Thank you for your encouragement!
