Do you ever just need to dance?
Stand up and cheer but didn’t because it would be seen as unseemly or silly?
Express your joy and pleasure with life?
My Sweet Pea danced on the streets with her new friend, the mom of my son’s fiance, Kathy. They both just danced. Right there on the street! I watching with a full heart. The freedom to dance.
May she never lose it.
When do we lose that urge or willingness to express joy through dancing. Through laughter and twirling.
I know a woman who lost it in her childhood. She is twirling with her grandchildren today for all those days she missed because she has healed and knows His joy today.
I lost it in rules and fear of condemnation. I found it again but sometimes I hide it. Worship can bring out the joy that can cause a person to dance in their hearts or whatever is good …
Dancing in the streets with the joy of our salvation. Not dancing to the beat but to the joy.
I am thinking dancing should start before we get to heaven….just a thought. I don’t want to be the older son who could have been dancing all that time and didn’t. It is not who I want to be be…a cranky, work only nondancing woman. I want to be one who celebrates with joy. Who lives with joy….that shows!
“Now his older son was in the field, and when he came and approached the house, he heard music and dancing. Luke 15:25
