By what we give

Our hearts, our spirits
fed by our sharing
our giving of ourselves
Not by the things of this earth
that rust and turn to dust
but by the love we share
by what we give instead
Follow the path of our master
by his loving word and deed
seeing our neighbors as ourselves
lifting them up when they are in need
