Where Would You Like To Go?

Shadow Dancing

The room is lit only by her "nightlight", which in actuality is a standup flashlight that she claims as "hers", and of course her grin.  Her grin could light up the darkest room, of that much I am sure.  She twirls and giggles as her shadow "dances" along with her.

I am there trying to memorize every movement, the way her hair catches the light, the sheer joy behind her giggles...suddenly she stops.  "Momma, don't stop singing!"  I laugh, unaware that I had stopped and continue on..."Blessed be the name of the Lord, Blessed be Your name."

She leaps and lifts her hands, spins, and waves her hands in the air...the most beautiful little dancer I have ever seen.  "You give and take away, You give and take away...my heart will choose to say, Lord blessed be Your name." Her tiny voice, once unsure of all of the words, now knows them by heart and she sings along.

I am struck by how carefree she is...how confident...how content.

There will be days ahead that it will be harder to leap and spin so effortlessly.  There will be times that giggles are not her first response.  There will be days when she might want to stop singing.

Lord, I pray that when those days come that she will still dance.
That she will still lift her hands.
That she will still say "Blessed be Your Name".
