Thought For The Week

Sometimes we forget or underestimate the difference one can make. The following reflection makes a lot of sense with a lovely finish.

The Difference One Can Make

One song can spark a moment,

One tree can start a forest,

One bird can herald spring,

One smile begins a friendship,

One star can guide a ship at sea,

One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights up a room,

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will lift sadness,

One step must start each journey,

One word must start each prayer,

One touch can show you care,

One heart can know what’s true,

One life can make the difference,

The one is you and it’s up to you.
