From the heart I say “Thank you”
Simple words but full of love
I will not take for granted 
Dear acts of kindness
A smile with understanding
A tear filled with compassion
A hug that’s pure and loving
Your gentle presence
Gratitude is the gift
I offer you from my heart
Thanksgiving that’s overflowing
For friendship and love
You are my refuge and strength
A presence that does not shift

These words were written after meditating on the thoughts of two Hebrew kings (David and Solomon).  Many acts of kindness and love are being shown because of the Nashville flood.
