And so – we write for five minutes, our words tumbling out – no editing, no polishing – just flat out on a one word prompt! We gather all our beautiful thoughts here in our Five Minute Friday community and then love on each other as only we can do! Click here to learn all about it.
Home is where the Five Minute Friday community gathers so please join us at Kate Motaung’s for our Friday fun!
The Dance of Life
Rhythms are the patterns that mark our lives.
We engage in the slow swaying of laid back calm or the cha-cha of frenzied fast-paced days.
We enjoy the music that fills our souls and sets the pace of our day.
The rhythms identify who we are, how we live our lives and the focus of our days and nights.
All come together in the dance of life.
As the the seasons change so do the rhythms.
Each one points to the ups and downs, the easy and hard and the struggles or joys.
The dance swirls around us just as leaves float to the ground in the Fall.
The rhythm of the dance is the fingerprint of our current season.

God leads the dance of life.
He matches our cadence with His as we learn His rhythms.
Each step is a chance to learn how God wants us to live.
The music plays on until God chooses silence.
Then our season ends, but the dance continues as we gain a new home and a new rhythm.
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
God blesses each of us with the dance of life. May we choose to live it well and dance like there’s no tomorrow.
