Practice Kindness

“I am so anxious that you have

an invincible kindness”[1]


Show all sincere esteem

Give all the kindness

of gentleness and patience.


What joy we will live!

What blessedness we will have!

For kindness begets kindness[2]


What holds us? It’s love.

Bound by God’s love

Our hearts beat as one in the Spirit


Kindness begets peace and harmony

regardless of race or creed or orientation

even peoples with competing goals.


So, in kindness we deal true

Yes means yes and no means no.

As we deal, so He deals with us.


If we want mercy, we must be merciful.

If we want pity, we must pity.

If we forgiveness, we must forgive.


Kindness is integrity with mercy

Kindness is justice with compassion

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
