I read a book several years ago called “Small Island” by Andrea Levy.” There is a quote that I came across in my reading that really touched me……
“He looked so pained that I dreamed of taking his hands and making him dance.”
This statement was directed to someone that was not particularly nice; he was a harsh self-centered person. But her compassion for his pain made her want to help him, to make him dance. Wow, to me that is pretty powerful. An example of God’s love in a way.
“By you my sorrow is turned into dancing,
you have taken away my clothing of grief and given me robes of joy”
Thank You God!
