When in Doubt…Dance

(****This is the second post in my series on How to Cope with Tough Times****)

I’m not a dancer but I love to dance.  

Most of my movements are deemed goofy by my kids.  

As a matter of fact, for about 20 years, while they were home, I  relegated dancing to the basement. 

But now…

I’m alone. 


I dance.  

I rock to 60s beats.  I leap and twirl to Broadway blasts. 

I clap and stomp to Bible Songs.  I sway and swing to soulful heart-cry croons.  

Movement has become therapy. Music enhances moods.

Times have been tough, so I dance.


You have turned my mourning into dancing for me;

You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.

That my soul may sing praise to your and not be silent.

O Lord my God, I will give thanks to YOU forever! “ – Psalm 30:11-12


When life is tough, don’t forget to dance . 

✅ Don’t forget to move to the melody of melancholy.  

Don’t forget to sway to the song of sorrow

Don’t forget to mambo to the music of  unexpected miracles

Our bodies need movement.  Our souls need song.

 Make music and move !  

Thanks, God, for the dance and the song.
