-- — “Because You’re Kind”

When someone does a kindness, it always seems to me, that’s’ the way God up in heaven would like us all to be, for when we bring some pleasure to another human heart, we have followed in his footsteps and had a little part in serving him who loves us, for I am sure it’s true that in serving those around us we serve and please him, too.
