Hey - Pennies - Poem by Bonnie Alden Phillips

It is not what you do with a MILLION if
riches should soon be your lot... but
what you do at the PRESENT with those
PENNIES you've got... so break to the
needy - sweet charity's bread... "For
GIVING is LIVING the ANGEL said...
"And must I be giving, again and again:, my
peevish and pitiless answer ran... "Oh
No," said the ANGEL piercing me thru...
"Just give 'til the MASTER stops giving to
you!" Yes, it is what YOU do with those
PENNIES you have got!
