'Dance' Lessons


 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, 
who have been called according to his purpose.
Rom.8:28

 I'm hoping today's moves include cookie-cutters!



Dawn’s rise-and-shine rehearsals toward farewell’s rest-in-peace
Grants dances that can leave us breathless in its twist-and-turn
The Choreographer of have-and-hold’s hug-and-release
Surprises us with steps we never dreamed that we could learn

Time’s what-once-was with ways nonplussed composes quite a tune
While what-now-is tests physical and mental want-and-will
Today’s moves we must master wait to waltz us ‘cross a room
That soon will ring with echoes where our tears and laughter spill

...and we should try to trust Love’s lead, rather than understand
His choreography for His glory, not yours and mine
Thus, often contrary to the performances we planned
But always for our good He unfolds each dance-move's design
