Your Corner

Brighten the Corner

We cannot all be famous
or be listed in "Who's Who"
But every person great or small
has important work to do
For seldom do we realize
the importance of small deeds
or to what degree or greatness
unnoticed kindness leads -
For it's not the big celebrity
in a world of fame and praise,
but it's doing unpretentiously
in undistinguished ways
the work that God assigned to us
unimportant as it seems,
that makes our task outstanding
and brings reality to dreams -
So do not sit and idly wish
for wider new dimensions
where you can put in practice
your many "good intentions" -
But at the spot God placed you
begin at once to do
Little things to brighten up
the lives surrounding you
For if EVERYBODY brightened up
the spot on which they're standing
by being more considerate
and a little less demanding
This old dark world would very soon
eclipse the "evening star"
If everybody brightened up
the corner where they are

The Pond

The fish are real, the loon is plastic. This is in Tim & Sheri's backyard. It's where they like to sit and ponder.
