something about a smile

you know it makes you feel really good to give something to someone. to watch them smile. to see what it has done to another person to have received something from you. so when you think about it, Jesus giving his life for everyone must have made him feel really good. good for Him.

i'm not trying to be disrespectful or anything here. i'm trying to say something.

(do things for other people)

so if you have a candle lit. even a big candle. in the middle of the room, say. and it's giving you, you know, only so much light.

and then you take a whoooooole bunch of teeny tiny skinny little candles and you dip one in another in another until all these little candles are lit. the room is lit up. and everyone has to take off their coats cause it gets so warm in there.

i'm trying to say something.

something about a property of light, or at least fire, but light.

maybe you have no idea what i'm talking about. but if you are not moved looking at that first candle that started it all and then looking around the room maybe at somebody you spoke to in the dark... a million people all lit up by candlelight. . . shoot. you're missing out.

something about a property of light.

something about passing a flame from one person to another.

something about a hand shake. something about acknowledging another person. something about embracing someone else's existance.

Pay it forward, and it all comes back to you.

However when people expect to have their good deed paid in kind, they never actually see that it was. They expect a deed twice to which they paid out. Greed is what kills a society. However I will continue to do my part.

While I cannot die for the sins of man, I can let a small token of goodness grow into an epidemic of happiness.
