Ted Williams’ Dance Steps of Grace

The homeless man with the golden voice is learning to let God lead

A homeless man held up a sign
that begged for help (not beer or wine).
The words upon that cardboard sheet
betrayed Ted Williams’ heart.

His is a heart that longs to change,
to make amends and rearrange
the values that have marked his life
and caused him endless pain.

Ted’s more than just a gifted voice.
He’s Heaven’s child who has a choice
to dance with change and let God lead
while learning steps of grace.

Ah yes, there are twelve steps of grace
for everyone who dares to face
tomorrow’s gift that is unwrapped
by choosing life today.

So, here’s to Ted and all the rest
who humbly face that daily test:
accepting what they cannot change
and changing what they can.
