Which Precious Things?

Which precious things did I lose or belittle today?
I found myself seeking sadness Saturday.
In serving, I looked for grieving folk.
I was walking beside some brothers, but
lost sight of them, my
peripheral sight slothful.
I was thankful when I arrived,
and then forgot to share it.
Fill me again,
so that I might share.
Fill me up.
I would share you again.
I was a sad sack.
Fill me with joy.

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
