A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. The sun rises, and the sun goes down, and hastens to the place where it rises. The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north; around and around goes the wind, and on its circuits the wind returns. All streams run to the sea, but the sea is not full; to the place where the streams flow, there they flow again….
What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.
Solomon ❘ Ecclesiastes 1
Everyday is a repeat. We do the same things again. Redundant. Necessary. Think of something different to do again.
Let’s Dance! We are created to dance!
Rise up, O Lord, in all your power.
With music and singing we celebrate your mighty acts. You give us joy in your presence!
Let’s dance again and again!
“In Christianity God is not a static thing…but a dynamic, pulsating activity, a life, almost a kind of drama.
Almost, if you will not think me irreverent, a kind of dance.”
~C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
“God must have created us to invite us into the dance, to say: If you glorify me, if you center your entire life on me, if you find me beautiful for who I am in myself, then you will step into the dance, which is what you are made for…
You are made to center everything in your life on me, to think of everything in terms of your relationship to me…
That’s where you’ll find your joy. That’s what the dance is about.”
King’s Cross: The Story of the World in the Life of Jesus by Timothy Keller
God has invited me to dance. Filled with joy…for the glory of God. Created to Dance! Again!
