Take A Walk! - Poem by Jo Covlin Engesether

Whenever a friend has proved untrue,
And the world seems cold and dark and blue;
Whenever you feel mistreated and kicked about,
Put on your coat and just get out.
Walk under the trees in the cool fresh air --
You'll find a Comforter waiting there.
He will guide you and console you as you stroll,
And your burdens away from your heart will roll.
Your eyes will sharpen as you open your heart,
And you'll count your blessings as you homeward start.
No matter how large your problems may have seemed to you,
They will become small and very few.
Just as soon as you crawl out of your little shell
And seek to help others who have troubles as well.
