Square Dancing

Friday night I was invited to go watch square dancing which turned out to be very enjoyable. And also amazing. I could not believe how those folks could dance so long and so vigorously, and still be able to walk off the floor when the music stopped, talking and breathing just as if nothing extraordinary had happened. Wow! I know they say dancing is good exercise, and now I’ve seen what it can do with my own eyes. This leads me to believe that all us couch potatoes should get up and dance at every opportunity (and I can only hope that I haven’t sit-out too many already). Huffing and puffing may be good for wolves trying to blow down houses, but it is not a good sign for people trying to tie their shoes. You just gotta’ feel that beat, you gotta’ move your feet; you gotta’ dance while the music goes on, goes on, goes on. And speaking of music…

The music Friday night was provided by the Punches Family (Mom, Dad, two boys and two girls). They are local, but somehow I had missed ever hearing them before, although it seems like just about everybody else I know was already a fan of this group, and now I am a fan too. The music was wonderful and I carried home in my heart some words from one of their songs, of which I don’t know the name, or the rest of the lyrics, but these are the words that are so comforting to me: “You may get to where you can’t remember God, but you’ll never get to where God won’t remember you.”

Book of Romans, 8:38-39 reads: “…neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” And speaking of God…

Aren’t we glad Jesus came to seek that which is lost? He came as a baby, but He grew up to become Savior of all. For all have sinned and sin cannot enter heaven, so Jesus, only, has the power and the right to forgive sins, because all sin is ultimately against God. If you belong to Him, it won’t matter whether your heart goes first, or if your mind leaves before your body has worn out. Wherever you’re at, and what ever state you may be in, be aware that God knows who you are and where you are, and He will bring you to Himself in due time.

It is great to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and it is even greater to worship Him as Lord and Savior. Wise men (and women) still seek Jesus, for He alone can save from the wrath which is to come. Thank you Jesus for coming down to save me and taking the terrible punishment for my sins. I love you and I’m so glad you love me. I’m glad to know you’re going to take care of me, no matter what.

A Merry Christmas from me and my family to you and your family. May God bless us all.
