Pluck them carefully (be choosy)
from a store of ten thousand or more.
Sift through the nonsense, the frippery, the redundant.
Find solid, plain words of extraordinary
beauty, wrapped in simplicity,
make of them a gift.
Present this gift in person
to someone in need….
A friend, a neighbor, a sister, a brother..
And here for the reader of this poem
unwrap these words, engrave them on your heart
(as I have mine)
“Jesus came to save sinners”
Now what words will you pick
and for whom?
