A Thought: Preparing to Dance.
As a lifelong Methodist, dancing was not only allowed, but encouraged and celebrated. King David danced before the Ark of the Covenant (the Law) upon its safe return from the enemy as an expression of gratitude. When I am excited and/or grateful about something I break into a dance. So today if you see me kick up my heals a bit, it’s because I refuse to be overwhelmed, but rather excited about all there is that is before me to do; the energy to do it; and the results which will come from my efforts. Today for what will you dance a ‘dance of gratitude?’ ( Pic is of Kara Hilliard, our bride-to-be, practicing with Tony Hilliard their upcoming father/daughter dance at the wedding!)
Ps. 150:4 “Praise Him with Timbrel and dance.”
