This post is part of a community post. Every Friday, a one-word prompt is announced. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, and no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just writing the thoughts as they come. If you’d like to participate, or read other posts, you can find all the info you need here.)

Just write.

Welcome to my first 5 minute Friday post. I hope to join you some more in the future, but I have long been watching and reading (some might say stalking or lurking) from behind my computer screen each week. I was beyond delighted when I finally had the chance to see what today’s prompt was:

Dance

Oh how very appropriate it is for today. Just a few hours before I knew the prompt, I told myself that if all went well with the final stages of getting the printer what they needed to print and send me a hard copy proof that I was going to celebrate. The first way I wanted to celebrate, was by participating in 5 minute Friday today. Oh, and I told my husband, I was ready to do a HAPPY DANCE! Little did I know that today’s prompt would be DANCE!!!!

It’s funny really, because growing up I never was allowed to attend dances with my friends, but that somehow never stopped me from sneaking off to them anyway (shhhh). As I got older, my parents did allow me to attend the “bigger dances” like homecoming and prom. However, by that time I was so self-conscience about dancing – I felt I wasn’t very good, and everyone would make fun of me. Oh boy, how little we know when we are in High School. The reality is, that no one was probably even paying attention to me, or what I was doing, except my boyfriend. Who, by the way was, and still is an excellent dancer. He had all the moves, he could even break-dance (which was big in the 80’s).

Today, just felt like a dancing day and it turned out, it has been just that.

Everything went well, and my hard copy proof is on the way. I have a song in my heart and a dance in my feet. When I saw the prompt, I was thinking about what Spiritual things I could say about DANCE. My mind of course immediately went to the Scripture in Zephaniah 3:17

“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (NLT)

And then just as quickly to the song Amazed by Lincoln Brewster. Which seems appropriate since this is the month for being grateful:

Amazed by Lincoln Brewster

You dance over me
While I am unaware
You sing all around
But I never hear the sound

Lord, I’m amazed by You
Lord, I’m amazed by You
Lord, I’m amazed by You
And how You love me

You paint the morning sky
With miracles in mind
My hope will always stand
For You hold me in Your hand

How deep, how wide
How great is Your love for me

 

Oh, How great His Love is for ME! Today is a DANCING day!!!!

Stop!
