Thanks for a "Fiddler" blessing

This was sent to me by Anjanette Wicker last week. After all the dancing in Fiddler on the Roof, the great music, the Fantastic Orchestra, the Real-to-life Cast, and the sold out crowds...It seemed very fitting to give God thanks for a very special blessing in my (our) summer.
Dancing With God
When I meditated on the word Guidance,
I kept seeing 'dance' at the end of the word.
I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead,
both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back
or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another..
It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully.
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
and attentiveness from one person
and gentle guidance and skill from the other.
My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.
When I saw 'G': I thought of God, followed by 'u' and 'i'..
'God, 'u' and 'i' dance.'
God, you, and I dance.
As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust
that I would get guidance about my life..

Dance together with God, trusting God to lead
and to guide you through each season of your life.
Fiddler Cast: Thank you for the shirt, the magic baton, & the Violin Ornament. Thank you for all the hard work and support. Well Done!

Fiddler Orchestra: Thank you for the Star Trek TNG season 1 & 2, for all the love, and for being awesome players. Well Done!

As the shirt says..."You know I love ya!" - Don
