Real Wealth


Give me wings.

Plenty of people

Have bigger houses…

More expensive cars…

Larger bank accounts.

That’s not the kind of riches

I’m talking about.

In the course of a week,

I encounter many people.

In person.

On the phone.


It’s amazing!

Many of these people

I would call Friend

Or Friend-to-Be.

One thing’s for sure…

My relationships

Are the source of real wealth

In my life.

A smile.

A kind word.

A compassionate touch.

Just a handful of memories

That I tuck away.

When I review these blessings,

It’s like adding helium to a balloon.

My heart gets lighter

Until it is adrift.

May I often add

To others’ store

Of happy thoughts.

By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another (John 13:35, NIV).
