Thought Train

One day I swear you'll hear about the rest of the Williamsburg trip. 

But today I was doing my usual praying and thinking in the shower. See if you can follow this train ...
I was praying to God (I know your relieved can't fool me).
      Then Jesus .... The birth ... Christmas in 2 days! ... Back to Christmas eve ... the drama I'm not looking forward to ... the Sing-Ma-Jigs I got for the mini-cousins and signed From The Lockes ... My cousin Amber Jo ... She's now married ... the wedding gift I made with their names ... How Locke is 5 letters and so is Jason and Staci ... And this is what I came up with today that started with praying. Not a bad way to start the day.

And then I thought this might be nice.

And then I remembered I did some graphics after getting the following story in an email. It's gone around I'm sure you will know it.

From the heart of an unknown author— 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.My prayer for you today is that God’s blessings and mercies be upon you on this day and everyday. May you abide in God as God abides in you. Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life.And I Hope You Dance!!!!!!!!
