Dancing on Daddy's Toes


Dancing on Daddy's Toes

I see His feet.
I hear the sweet music captivating me.
I long to dance with my King.

In shame, I hang my head.
I'm afraid I don't know how.
The steps, the rhythm, letting Him lead, only blurs of hope.


In majestic gentleness, He lifts my chin.
I cannot focus on His face, not yet,
His words change my life.

'Stand on my feet, my daughter, and we will dance.
I will teach you the steps as you learn to trust me.'
Holding me close, I step on nail scarred feet.

The dance begins.
With each step, more freedom, lavish love, surrendered trust.
My life's dance, standing on my King's feet.
Today, I am learning the rhythm and the song He sings over my life.
As I stand on His feet.


"It doesn't matter where we are, the steps we may have forgotten or never knew.The dance can begin today. For you sweet friends, for me. Do you have a relationship with your Creator, the intimacy, where you can hear the song of heaven? He is waiting to dance with all of us. Step by step, He is teaching me. To trust. To let Him lead. To hear the heartbeat of heaven and dance along." Sarah Dawn

Still taking lessons from the King,

  2. Okay, how comes it looks better over here :)

    Thanks friend for encouraging me, I think I'm going to keep it long, add some layers and abit of bangs as well. Funny, I hardly ever go to have someone cut my hair, I just do it myself.

    Hugs to you,
    Sara
