Dancing Hearts

  • Posted on December 22, 2010 at 6:50 pm

I want a dancing heart,
One that leaps at small miracles.
A look in the eye,
A snowflake in mid-air,
The cabbage moths playing together in summer,
My cats sleeping dog-piled in twos,
The crown of my sister’s head asleep on my breast,
And the softness of her hair under my hand as she trusts me and rests…
The little things are miracles.
Feline heart-beats and purrings…
My heart dances when I notice these seemingly mundane things
Because they are precious.
In quiet moments, I feel God dance with me,
His arms around my heart.
Quietest, deepest communion…
Softly dancing, like lovers on a ballroom floor lost in each other,
Each listening to a mutually pounding heart…in tandem with their own.
Miracles do happen.
This is my dancing heart.

“My lover spoke and said to me, ‘Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.
See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.’” Song of Solomon 2:10-13 NIV

Thoughts on Worship

  • Posted on December 4, 2010 at 1:16 pm

I found this piece in one of my old journals and decided to share it.

When you draw close to God,
the music becomes a communication between you and God.
It is no longer just pretty music.
Worship becaomes a connection between you and your Maker.
This where you are meant to live.
When you are in this place with all your heart, nothing else matters.

” One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another,
and seeing that he answered them well, he asked Him, ‘Which commandment is the first of all?’
Jesus answered, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one;
you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”’ Mark 12:28 & 31 NRSV
