More valuable than gold
More fragile than glass
A treasure which runs so deep

Invest in them wisely
Plant your seeds and watch them grow
Nurture them with the utmost of care

Do not let them die of thirst
Rejuvenate them
When there seems to be no hope

Share with an open heart
Be truthful, honest and sincere
And brave enough to face yourself

Admit your mistakes
Ask for forgiveness
Freely forgive others

When the glimmer of life
Comes to its inevitable end
Life’s measure of success is your relationships

John 12:23-26 But Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor. NKJV
