The Teacher’s Prayer

I am working my way back into blogging on a daily basis. This is a wonderful poem about becoming a teacher. Children are a gift from God to teachers, parents, and grandparents.

WORDS IN THE LIGHT

He does not go to church.
He has no religion,
but he works in a school
and uses books and pencils.

He sits beside the children of God
then looks deep in their eyes.
They write the words he reads,
he reads the words they write,

and the smile on his face
enlightens their heart,
and the smile in their heart
enlightens his soul,

and I do not doubt
that God the Father
will answer
the Teacher’s Prayer.
