Suppose we start this very day
To live our lives in a different way;
Suppose we vowed and constantly tried
To help those in trouble on life’s wayside.
If we showed by our deeds a hint of His love,
Wouldn’t earth be a bit more like heaven above?
Look for a smile today, and return it with one of your own.
Give someone faith and hope; it’s such a beautiful loan.
Gather a thought that’s kind, one that’s sincere and deep.
Be sure to pass it along, for such are too precious to keep.
Forget yesterday’s sorrows, mistakes, sadness, and pain.
Lift your heart with hope as flowers to sun and rain.
Offer a word of comfort and prayer to help someone in need.
A little thoughtful gift, some flowers, or a smile makes us all rich indeed.
You shall not pass this way again, so do any good you can do.
Don’t put it off till tomorrow, or the chance may be lost for you.
Today will soon be a memory, so don’t let it come to an end,
Without a smile, a song, or just a word from a friend.
Don’t let worry and care depress you or brush your joy away,
But arise and give thanks to God above for His love and another “blest day.”
