I was Broken
You Mended me.

I was near Death
You gave me Peace. (1980)

I was Lost
You Found me.

I was Lonely
You gave me Comfort.

I was Hopeless
You gave me Hope.

I was Hungry
You gave me Fulfillment.

I was Wayward
You Sheltered me.

I was Happy
You gave me Exceeding Joy

For others: Can I do anything less?
Thank YOU.

Man is not the light
or the source of light.
We only reflect.

    Shades of the words in RED. “I was hungry and you fed me. When did we feed you Lord? When you did it to one of the least these.”
