I Wonder...

You know Lord
how I serve you 
with emotional fervor
in the limelight.
You know how eagerly
I speak for you
at the woman's club.
Or how I effervesce
when I promote a
fellowship group.
You know my enthusiasm
at bible study or choir.

But, how would I react,
I wonder...
if you pointed to a basin of water
and asked me to wash
the calloused, old feet
of a bent and wrinkled woman
day after day
month after month.
In a room where nobody saw
and nobody knew?

Lifetime Friendship...

We've ran the gamut,
faced the miles.
Fought our battles,
shared smiles.
Seen the sunset,
on those we loved.
Forged ahead,
dared to shove.
Lived our dreams,
divulged the truth.
Rejoiced together,
raised the roof.
Bought a future,
on borrowed time.
Built the impossible,
and made it shine.
