Your life leaves a double footprint

Every day you infuse with life and love
Leaves a double footprint:
One on your soul,
And one on earth.
Your life makes a path like that:
One will lead others to greatness,
The other will lead you
Safely Home.

Born with open hands

I was born with open hands
Why should I ever close them?
Let rain and snow fall
my hands will remain uncovered
absorbing only
that which will make them stronger

I was born with open hands
Why should I ever cover them?
The cold cannot touch me
for my hands are burning
with God’s infinite Love
