Chapter 3, Page 22, Book 10

Hope is the ability to hear the music of the future; but faith is having the courage to dance to it today!

Grace Guts and Gusto!

Dancing through life with grace, guts and gusto isn’t as hard as we might think it would be. It is like fancy foot work for the soul.

Each day the rhythm or the steps may be different, but as long as we’ve a good partner we won’t stumble or skip a step. Having a good partner means having someone that cares and guides you. Someone that isn’t afraid to be strong and take the lead.

Sometimes we dance the day away at slow time, others times we waltz the day away. Slow or fast the dance is always going on.

I took the lead in the dance for awhile and then I found out that following was much easier and so much more worthwhile. Now I can dance to just about any tune and love it.

Life is the dance, my partner is the Lord. He may send a few others along the way to support and guide, but he always lets me know that the dance is His and he chooses the tempo.

If life is trying it’s best to get me down He picks up the beat, twirling me around with a promise of delight.

Have a Merry Monday everyone!
