If tomorrow I lose everything
All the things I have gained until now
If they were all just taken away
I know I would survive somehow!

Things are nice to have, you agree?
They make life so much easier too
They bring certain comforts to our world
As we struggle our way through

I don’t care all that much about the things
That I have acquired up until today
They can come and go so easily
I’ve lost many things along the way

Material things aren’t so important to me
They are replaceable that is true
There are some things I’d hate to lose
My family, my friends and you!

Dancing With God
When I meditated on the word
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.

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.
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.

And I Hope You Dance Through
Life with Him
