Sharpened Iron

I had walked a long and dusty road
The rocks were sharp and heavy my load
I stopped to rest at the house of a friend
Moments of quiet and peace to spend

She noticed my feet--and the look on her face!
"Those poor things-what an awful disgrace!"
She found water and basin, towel and soap
Her gentle ministration brought peace and hope

Just as the Saviour washed the feet of his men
From the dirt of the world that they walked in then
"Iron sharpeneth iron"with God's Word and prayer
 Reproof sent with love shows true Christian care


To my friend,
Who has "Washed
  My feet" with
Wise words and     kindness
