I HOPE your dead place is coming alive like this dead and discouraged unemployment office in Madrid came alive when a small flash mob materialized.
I HOPE you know that just as everything can go horribly wrong in only five minutes, so in five minutes your face can be lifted up.
I HOPE you know that a tiny bit of joy you contribute can go deeper and farther than you’d ever imagine.
I HOPE you see that where and when you contribute your little piece of joy can magnify it and make it mean more.
I HOPE you realize that just as George Harrison never knew a little song he created while walking in a garden would surprisingly encourage unemployed Spaniards forty-three years later, so something you do today can live.
I HOPE you know you have the power to leave any situation better than you found it. How do I know you have that power? Because you are a human being created by God in his image and that’s what he does.
Maybe I appreciate this more because there was a season long ago when I spent a lot of time in an office like this with no one to sing to me.
