A Dance to Remember

– Like any good dance there are partners,

– Their role is to complement the other,

– At times leading or teaching one another,

– And such it is with that of our lives,

– Only the partners are those within,

– Yet their faces remain seemingly unnoticed,

– While their opposition in their forces collide,

-Their steps echo in our minds as our memories,

– Many times sadly they drown out our present moment,

– As we go through the inevitable changes in life,

– The trials we face briskly sweep us across the dance floor,

– While the blessings gracefully twirl us about,

– Though we might only wish to be faced by one partner,

– God gives us both and takes away as He remains a teacher,

– The music keeps playing even if we stop dancing,

– Because our internal dance partners keep on moving,

– Trials can be blessings when we move with them in stride,

– Blessings can become trials when they cause us to stop moving,

– The Lord’s dance of life is meant to be glorious,

– His hand is always outstretched waiting to be our lead,

– As he perfects our form through trials and blessings,

– We are graced by an intimate, life-long partner,

-As well as a dance to remember…

* Hebrews 3:13 – 13But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
