You Never Know…

It was a day that started off really bad… I was feeling like I had been lashed and bruised by life and people…feeling like I didn’t have the strength to get up, having taken enough punches.

Later that afternoon, I was at a print shop getting some printing done, ruminating on images and thoughts arising from a place of sadness, when I heard a girl at the shop break out in song “that’s what Lily is for…insert lyrics of That’s What Friends Are For… I turned around and looked into the face and bright smile of the songstress… This little live snapshot was a gentle balm on my broken spirit. She made my day, I let her know.

Sometimes life or God sends messengers, a healing touch, voice, song…and you never know when you’re called to play that role.
