{be the light} 11/31 #sol18


The March Slice of Life Story Challenge
hosted at the Two Writing Teachers.
Join us for a month of writing!

Be the light
the one who comforts
shows kindness

When we feel
that little nudge --
to send a text
make that call

When we hear
the whispers --
to say a prayer
buy a little gift

Do so without
fear, worry

For it can give
the greatest gift of
hope, strength
and love

Little nudges can
make a BIG impact --
and you may never
know the depths

But sometimes
you may learn about
the power of your

I believe those nudges,
those whispers
are God's way
of connecting us

And, in time, the gift of
hope, strength, love
will be returned

So, go, be the light
the one who comforts
shows kindness

  1. I absolutely love this!! I just sent a link to my fellow teachers on 4 Ways Not to Let Others Dim Your Light I should send along your poem as a companion text! It's beautiful, Michelle!

    1. Thanks for sharing the link to George's post! He is an inspiration!

  2. Your poem's message lifted my awareness of how to offer help - sure a text but why not make a call. Sure, say a prayer, but why not do more and get a gift. Both make a personal connection, something lacking more and more in our tech world. Talking, shopping for another and getting with them to give in person - so important. Thanks for the lovely written reminder, your poem, of something important.

  3. Beautiful. Such a wonderful message. I'm going to have to show this to my husband because he lives this life.

  4. What a special poem, Michelle. So rich and full of meaning. Something for each of us to live by. Thanks for sharing. Love you, Mom

  5. Thank you for sharing your poem! It's beautiful and has such a powerful message. Deep down I wish that everyone would live a life like one described in your poem... could you imagine how wonderful our world would be?!

  6. Thank you for your poem, Michelle. The nudges and whispers are very real at times when I have someone who needs a little extra encouragement. Such a true-to-life message here.

  7. This is so beautiful, Michelle! What a perfect inspiration for all of us.

  8. I'm so glad you followed your heart and sent sun-SHINE to your e-friend.
    You are very special!
