Unknown outreach

The days are certainly hectic...and they don't show any signs of slowing down.  In our own race to get things done and meet deadlines, what do we notice?  Everyone else is in the same race, but so varied are the paces.
Does anyone have time to "be nice?"

How many are the testimonies
in a single day?
How often do we touch someone
as we go on our way?
Not even going "out of our way"
one's life to affect?
Looking back in earnest, can we
see such an effect?

Those things we do without a thought
make others think so oft...
like saying "Hi!" to someone that
the world has often scoffed...
like reaching out to someone from whom
life has tried to run...
and we may never even know
what our kind deeds have done.

But this I know: there is a world
that watches all the time!
They will see you doing 'good'
just like they see a crime!
Be "caught," therefore, assisting someone
in their daily grind;
one more embrace from an angel
you may surely find!

The world is a busy place.  You are a busy person.  Are you too busy to make a difference in another's life?  You may be surprised at how simple it is to do!
