May I Have this Dance?

disco ball

My husband and I love to dance. We have danced since we dated. Of course it was disco then…..and it is disco now when we get a chance to dance.   We actually won contests when we were teens. Seriously….

We even like to dance in the kitchen.  A good streaming oldies station can do wonders for a couple. We have so much fun!

I had struggled for several years with how much the Father really loved me. How could Jesus Christ love me?  I always thought that God only loved me when I obeyed Him. I was completely immersed in legalism. The more I worked, the more He loved me…or so I thought. If I did not do what I “should” He would not love me.

I was in the middle of a Bible study on “love” and I could feel something changing in my heart.May I Have This Dance?

Then it happened.

The dream……the beautiful, lovely, incredible dream.

I was dressed in the most beautiful blue iridescent ball gown. I looked like a princess. I had on a tierra that glistened with my favorite stones, sapphires. The stone of my birth month.

The ball room was just glorious. The light sparkled  in the bright room.  The warmth felt like a breeze from the ocean, coating my spirit in praise. It felt as though I could glide on air.

I was dancing with a man. I assumed it was my husband…he was tall, broad shouldered and had long, dark hair.  Hmmmm, my husband’s hair wasn’t long and his skin was darker than my husband’s skin.  I was a bit curious.

Could it be?

We glided effortlessly across the floor to the beautiful music. The dance was full of grace and beauty. Love seemed to radiate from every corner. I had never seen anything like it before, and even though it was a dream…I had never felt so loved in my life! Not at all a romantic love, but a love that was like nothing I had ever experienced.  It was unconditional love….so deep that nothing could penetrate it.1 John 4_16 %22So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.”

I was dancing with Jesus.


As He led me across that ballroom floor, I began to understand just how much He loved me…His daughter, His princess.

Yes… Jesus…you may have this dance.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 59 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 43 years, married 40 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
