Heart Prints

Whatever our hands touch

We leave fingerprints

On walls, on furniture

On doorknobs, dishes, books.

There’s no escape.

As we touch we leave our identity.

Oh God, wherever I go today

Help me leave heartprints

Heartprints of compassion

Of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness

And genuine concern.

May my heart touch a lonely neighbor

Or a runaway daughter

Or an anxious mother

Or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Lord, send me out today

To leave heartprints.

And if someone should say,

"I felt your touch,"

May that one sense YOUR LOVE

Touching through ME. 2 from [WordsOfFaith] Heart Prints
