Once again we say

Goodbye to another year lived

We look back at days

The precious jewels of time

They live in our mind

Shining, jaded, memories

Remain, we reflect

Upon the good and bad days

Gone forever from us

In a world of hurt

One heart among many

Can bring souls comfort

One heart that’s surrendered

Completely to God’s will

As I continue to read the true story of Katie Davis Majors heart’s commitment to God and His will, I am amazed at what God has done through her for the people in Uganda.

I recommend reading her book “Kisses for Katie”. It’s a great testimony of what God can accomplish through one heart that’s totally surrendered to Him.

One heart

Filled with His love

Overflows

Submerging

Many others with its fervor

Changing many lives

This poem was inspired by a book I am reading titled “Kisses for Katie”. It is a true story of a young American girl Katie Davis who leaves her comfortable lifestyle in America to go to help the under privileged people of Uganda. Her one heart full of love for these people ended up changing many lives for the better. It is an amazing story that continues today thru the non- profit ministry “Amazima.” Which she started in 2008.
