Dancing With God

When I meditated on the word Guidance,
I kept seeing 'dance' at the end of the word.
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.

Isn't that pretty? I got this in an email this morning....makes a lot of sense. Dancing with God...I like that......alot.
Well, I was Perfectly Lazy this weekend! It was quiet. Of course, Lord of the Ring was on...all three of them...Hahaha....geez. Hope you all had a happy weekend!!

gOOD oN You Donna...doing "nuffin" is something we should all take time out to do!
I certainly would happily do it at the moment!!
Loved that whole analogy of Guidance....
The hardest lesson to learn is to be guided and not always leading,
I think it's a Woman thing...But put the way you didi it's quite uplifting!!

Donna said...
