What You Give!

I don’t remember where I heard it first,
But since I heard it, I loved it and utilize it,
The phrase is, ‘You Get Back From the Universe, That Which You Provide,’
And I am living proof it is true,
The more you do for others, the more that comes back to you,
However, there is a bit of a trick to it,
You have to really do the thing, selflessly, without thought of gain,
For it to truly work…
A few months ago, while in a bit of a spiritual struggle,
I had this dream,
I knew so many things were wonderful,
Everyday I was waking up,
There was a fine man in bed with me,
Who loves him so me,
A roof over my head,
Food in my refrigerator,
Bills were paid,
But I felt off-kilter, kind of funky,
Not right,
Couldn’t put my finger on it,
Then I had the dream,
In the dream the voice said,
‘Open your hand again,
Give…’
I wasn’t trying to hear it, I was tithing, donating,
Shoot, what did they want from a Sister,
The next day, my son sent me a text, telling me a young woman needed me,
I sighed…but I knew I would answer the call,
And as sure as I am a tall, black woman with an attitude,
I felt better, more spiritually, heartful,
And the other night it hit me,
An open hand was also an open heart,
And as long as it pours forth,
And stays open,
It will be constantly filled,
Even when it’s dark outside,
What a revelation!

Love You All!
Angelia

This is so inspirational, sis. Thanks, I needed to hear this today, especially at a time when I feel like I want to close up because there is just so much to do and I don't have time... I needed to see how I'd feel better after making the the time. ;-)
