Thought For The Month


Photo of a candle flame

Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;
'Twas not given for thee alone,
Pass it on;
Let it travel down the years,
Let it wipe another's tears,
'Till in heaven the deed appears–
Pass it in.
You can't light a candle
To show others the way,
Without feeling the warmth
Of that bright little ray;
And you can't give a rose all
fragrance with dew,
Without some of its sweetness
Remaining with you.

– Henry Burton
