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.  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.

 I Hope You Dance!
