It only takes a moment

It only takes a moment to do a thoughtful thing.

Just think of the happiness our thoughtul acts might bring.

Why, it only takes a moment to pick up the telephone

and say hello to someone who is sitting home alone.

And it only takes a moment, when someone is feeling blue,

to send a cheery little card or pen a line or two.

It will only take a moment to extend a helping hand

or give someone assurance that we really understand.

And it only takes a moment from our busy working day

to say a prayer for someone, be they near or far away.

But I can't, for I'm too busy... I just haven't got the time,:"

How often have we said it, like an old familiar rhyme.

Yet each moment is God-given, every one a treasure rare,

Not to be hoarded selfishly but meant for us to share.

In our little acts of kindness, words that cheer and comfort bring,

it only takes a moment to do a thoughful thing.

--Alice H. Christianson
