I will dance

This week as I reminisce, I am feeling much like dancing. Ten years ago this week I had just returned home from the hospital after a splenectomy with hopes of restoring a life-threatening low platelet count. It was a very scary time. Now ten years later, it is wonderful to look back and see where I was then and how far I have come. My healing journey led me to many new experiences. I learned that the power God placed in us to heal along with natural medicine could revolutionize my health and life. It just makes me want to dance.

Since we are going to dance, we will need some music.... I love this song and like to play it over and over again. Don't worry I will not make you dance all those times! The words to this song touched me. Come dance with me...

Lyrics to I Will Dance by Phil Driscoll:
When I'm alone with You Lord,
the troubles seem to disappear
and the peace that comforts me
always comes when you are near
and the tears fill my eyes
when I stand in Your Presence
and Your overwhelming mercy
brings life to me

'Cause Your loves too much for my heart to contain
joy too much that my feet won't refrain
Your touches make me never be the same again mmhhm

So I'll dance
like the rain on the roof,
tell my soul that the Spirit's on the loose
don't know if anyone will understand,
feels like an angels gotta hold of my hand

So I'll dance...
