Dance dance wherever you may be

Today was such a wonderful day, I just felt so alive, energetic and blessed! I really feel like today was such a gift. I’ve felt better than I think I have since before I went into the ER back in April. I just thank God for all the happiness in my life and pray to hold on to this feeling for the days that aren’t so great. When I got home from work I also received a message from a friend of mine who is a Hodgkin’s survivor telling me about a potential speaking opportunity this fall in New Orleans to discuss fertility in young cancer patients. Everywhere I look I see signs that I’m exactly where I need to be right now and that everything is as it should be, with or without cancer.

I’ve been humming my favorite hymn since I got home from work:

The Lord of the Dance

I danced in the morning when the world was begun

And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun

I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth

At Bethlehem I had my birth

 

Dance dance wherever you may be

I am the Lord of the dance said He

And I’ll lead you all wherever you may be

And I’ll lead you all in the dance said He

 

I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee

But they would not dance and they wouldn’t follow me

I danced for the fishermen for James and John

They came with me and the dance went on

 

Dance dance wherever you may be

I am the Lord of the dance said He

And I’ll lead you all wherever you may be

And I’ll lead you all in the dance said He

 

I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame

The holy people said it was a shame

They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high

They left me there on a cross to die

 

I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black

It’s hard to dance with the devil on your back

They buried my body and they thought I’d gone

But I am the Dance and I still go on

 

Dance dance wherever you may be

I am the Lord of the dance said He

And I’ll lead you all wherever you may be

And I’ll lead you all in the dance said He

 

They cut me down but I leapt up high

I am the life that will never never die

I’ll live in you if you live in me

I am the Lord of the dance said He

 

Dance dance wherever you may be

I am the Lord of the dance said He

And I’ll lead you all wherever you may be

And I’ll lead you all in the dance said He

  1. That’s me and my dad’s favorite hymn too! “I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black, it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back, they buried my body and they thought I’d gone, but I am the dance and I still go on.”
