It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 2, Page 19, Book 18


Short and Sweet




Whatever our hands touch -
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture
On doorknobs, dishes, books.
There's no escape.
As we touch we leave our identity.
Wherever I go today
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion
Of understanding and love.
Heartprints of kindness
And genuine concern.

May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
Or a runaway daughter
Or an anxious mother
Or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today
To leave heartprints.
And if someone should say,
'I felt your touch,'
May they also sense the love
that is deep within my heart.

You are so right - we do leave our fingerprints every where we go and on everyone we see. Have to be careful! I hope you are feeling better. Is it the flu?
