We are all at sea in that picture and I remember being scared that day …

But looking at the picture now, years later, there was nothing on my face or the other guys (who knows if they were scared too) to show how terrified I was… thinking about that made me realize how different people go/are going through different/major things in life that cannot be detected by just looking at them.

This line of thought was because of something I just witnessed… There were two guys (boy and girl)working together in the same office. They fell in love and started dating each other… after a few years, the marriage plan started, they( don’t know if they always knew, but at least the whole world) found out they were both AS and kicked against it. It was a long battle but the summary is that they broke up.

The story is, six years later, I stumbled into both of them at a gathering and we were all having a chat and it didn’t take me 30mins to realize they were in love (now note, as that time, I didn’t even know they ever had a relationship). All I knew was that whatever it was that was going on between them, the connection was so strong you could almost cut it with a knife… I think I can recognize love when I see it (and I saw it with them)

The story gets a little more complicated when I tell you one of them is now married…

I discussed it with the guy and he admitted he was still in love with her and for him there could never be another perfect match. The only reason why they did not get married against all odds was because the Church was not going to join them and everyone told them they were very selfish for not considering the pain they could be making their unborn child/children face…

I know this AS/AS thing is a very delicate topic as we find Christians on opposite sides of the fence and as such I kind of like to sit on the fence. But for this couple, who now are living their separate lives trying to pretend all is well but are thoroughly unhappy… I can’t help but think they should have gone ahead…

What do you think?

Dancing with God~
When I meditated on the word GUIDANCE,
I was drawn to “dance” at the end of the word.
I reflected upon how 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 this 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.
This statement is what guidance means to me.
As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust
that I would get guidance about my life.
Once again, I became willing to let God lead. “

My prayer for you today is that God’s blessings
and mercies be upon you and your family
on this day and everyday.
May you abide in Him as He abides in you.
Dance together with God, trusting Him to lead
and to guide you through each season of your life.
. I Hope You Dance !!!!!!!!!!!!
