The giver in us,
the mighty force of the Almighty,
the hammer of the Holy Spirit,
the builder of the conscience,
the walls of the house of humanity,
the good in all of us
instilled in our hearts,
the blessings of our creation
that speak through our charity,
our little known quality within us
that comes alive from our giving
and gives us that wonderful
feeling of worthiness
as it thrives throughout
our benevolent deeds.
 
Those who take without giving,
bestowed with the same Spirit,
ever feeling the force
and how it flows,
how grand they would feel
if they united with the flow
and let it conduct their lives
the same as we conduct ours,
we the givers and
upholders of charity.

Thanx Nelson. I wrote this for the offertory response at church.

How true. We give because we love. We can only love if we love our self. Then and only then when charity can sprout from our heart with all the fragrance of loving and kindness it inherently possesses-knowing truly what love is.

Powerful poem. Fave and love it. Thanks Robert.
