I Hope you Dance


Today is a great day and I had to share this with all of you. A former co-worker and I have kept in touch and he is always sending me inspiring emails. This one is by far the best and I just had to share it with those who believe. I hope you take it and share it with your friends and family. Love and Hugs, Pat

Dancing With God

When I meditated on the word Guidance,
I kept seeing 'dance' at the end of the word
And I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
And everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead,
Both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back
Or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another.
It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully.
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
And attentiveness from one person
And gentle guidance and skill from the other.
My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.
When I saw 'G': I thought of God, followed by 'u' and 'i'.
'God, 'u' and 'i' dance.' God, you, and I dance.
As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust
that I would get guidance about my life and once
again, I became willing to let God lead.
My prayer for you today is that God's blessings
And mercies are upon you on this day and everyday.
May you abide in God, as God abides in you.
Dance together with God,
Trusting God to lead and to guide you through each
season of your life.
This prayer is powerful and there is nothing attached.
If God has done anything for you in your life,
Please share this message with someone else.
There is no cost but a lot of rewards; so let's continue
to pray for one another.

And I Hope You Dance !

Greeting Pat,
I found your site VIA "The Secret Garden". Your site is so lovely not just in pictures, but in thought & words. You must be special person and your friends I'm sure are blessed by you. I will stop by again, just to be encouraged by your posts. Also, God's blessings for a speady recovery with your disc- been there, done that! I pray you DON'T have to have surgery and that it can be worked back into place as mine was.
