Read Poem: TO FREELY SHARE by Gary Bertnick

What the new heart freely shares,
True love for another person
Flows from the pure stream of our God,
The Holy Spirit fountain rises up from within
Whether for a needy or special brother or sister
It flows out the same;
At times in a subway rush hour
Or a crowded sidewalk
The heart suddenly stirs and reaches out
A stranger seen, maybe even heard,
One unknown, yet the Spirit urges
And often a sudden prayer is spoken in compassion, in kindness
Whether young or old, male or female
Caring love moves within to touch one or more, at times literally!
Alert and watchful
The work of our Peaceful Shepherd within us, through us
The Counsel of His Spirit
Wisdom reveals a greater plan
To gather more together always;
To enlarge my unique personal path,
And to enlarge my refined heart in His Kingdom Family of abundance
The Fellowship of Love that can only grow in quality and numbers
And become more satisfying and pleasing to Him.
“The Book of Calling Home”
