Uninhibited Dance

"David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the Lord with all his might, while he and the entire house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets."2 Sam. 6:14-15

The music segued from light jazz to upbeat, jitter bug. It was time to kick off our shoes, let loose and celebrate the Happy Couple. But, who would lead us out onto that dance floor? Not wanting to upstage the bride and groom on their special day, I waited patiently, tapping my toes in time to the beat.
Behind me I heard the running feet of my then, 23 month old granddaughter and in an instant she was at the edge of the dance floor, stopped only by the vastness of that great space. She stood there in her pink frilly dress, with a huge smile on her face, clapping her hands and tapping her feet in her sparkly shoes to the beat of the music. Instinctively she knew it was time to dance and she was ready!

  1. There's not much better than watching children joy filled and dancing freely... except for when maybe us adults can let loose with them! I'm thanking God for JOY today Dawn and for countless ways to express it! ~ Love, Amy
