To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
When Chances Come Again
by Willo Lou Davis
If you had been a lowly shepherd who heard the angels sing,
Would you have left your sheep alone to find the baby King?
If you had been the innkeeper, pressed & hurried since the dawn,
Would you have done the best you could? Or told them to move on?
If you had been a wise man, due respect & courtly graces,
Would you have left it all behind to search in unknown places?
We cannot know what we’d have done if we had been there then.
We only know what we do now
When chances come again.
Photo backstory: This week I’m sharing some of my most favorite Christmas poems & quotes with you, my lovely bloggy friends! I wish we could meet to chat over a cup of coffee & something decadently chocolate. But this will have to do! Wishing you all the blessings of the season!
