I received an email today with the poem attached (below). I just love to see how God works in each and every one of us. Some of us are gifted with words, hospitality, organizational skills (I missed this gift :), we have been blessed differently/individually and here I sit gleaming from all of you! I am in awe of the gifts of the Lord.

I wake up each morning thanking the Lord for another day. To be able to see the gifts of the Lord in my children and husband. Sometimes, when I wake up I forget that we are blessed and LIFE happens. Anger creeps in or the overwhelming feeling of cleaning, cooking, picking up, laundry and getting through the day before my husband gets home.

This poem is what I needed today. I had a lot going on not just home stuff but emotionally. It was nice to know and be reminded that WE can give it up to our Father. To be able to look to our Lord for Guidance! I hope this will 'guide' you the way it has 'guided' me. ~God Bless You

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.
