I read a book several years ago called “Small Island” by Andrea Levy.” There is a quote that I came across in the reading that touched me.
“He looked so pained that I dreamed of taking his hands and making him dance.”
Her statement is directed toward someone that is not particularly nice; he is a harsh self-centered person. But her compassion for his pain made her want to help him, not only to help him but to bring him joy, to make him dance. Wow, to me, that is an amazingly powerful hope of kindness — an example of God’s love.
“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!
