'Once you choose hope, anything's possible.' ~Christopher Reeve
A boy was in the burn unit of a hospital for many weeks making little if any progress. His teacher was asked to visit him and tutor the boy with some schoolwork while he was in hospital. As she tried to tutor him it was obvious the boy was in a lot of discomfort. The teacher felt ashamed of putting him through such a senseless exercise. The next day the nurse asked her: "What did you do to that boy? His entire attitude has changed. It's as though he has decided to live." A few weeks later the boy explained that he had given up hope until his teacher arrived. "They wouldn't send my teacher to work on nouns and verbs with a dying boy, would they?" We too journey into people's lives and into places and events that on the surface seem to have no meaning or purpose to us. Yet God gently works through us, creating many surprises and in ways we least expect.
