Gentleness is a life preserver. It comes in many forms, like kind eyes or kneeling beside another in need. An inner strength of humility and hope, one I don't always have but I ask for help regaining when I feel it draining.
Gentleness is a life preserver. It comes in many forms; in the natural ways we long to nurture those in need like in the heart of adoption and in parenting and in mentoring;
Gentleness is a life preserver; letting others know they are not alone, they have someone on their side.
Yes, stop. take a breath. consider. and pray. Praying words is fine. but letting your pause be a prayer; that works too. Inhale; acknowledge your need. Exhale; let this be your plead for rescue.
Then as we go on with our day let us offer kind eyes, a nurturing heart, and our simple presence; knowing though seeming small it may be a life preserver.
