She Ain’t Heavy, She’s My Sister

“…because, well, that’s what you do.”



The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I’m strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We’ll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

If I’m laden at all
I’m laden with sadness
That everyone’s heart
Isn’t filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It’s a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn’t weigh me down at all
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother

He’s my brother
He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother…

We’re ‘Sweeter’ When We SMILE!

A Smile is a cheer, to you and to me;
The cost is nothing, it’s given free.

It comforts the weary, and gladdens the sad;
Consoles those in trouble, good or bad

To rich and to poor, beggar or thief
it’s free to all, of any belief.

A natural gesture of young and of old;
cheers on the faint, and disarms the bold.

Unlike most blessings for which we pray;
It’s one thing we keep, when we give it away!

Sometime …Somewhere

You gave on the way a pleasant smile,
and thought no more about it.
It cheered a life that had been dark the while,
which might have been wrecked without it.
And so for that smile that was given there,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

You spoke one day a cheering word,
and passed to other duties.
It cheered a heart; new promise stirred,
and painted a life with beauties.
And so for that word of golden cheer,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

You lent a hand to a fallen one,
a lift in love was given.
You saved a soul when hope was gone,
and helped him on toward heaven.
And so for that help you proffered there,
you’ll have a reward sometime …somewhere.

—Author Unknown

My prayer today is that I will at ‘sometime’ arrive at ‘somewhere’ and that it will be really, really crowded, and that I will see you there as well!
