Dancing Feet

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker, let the children of Zion be joyful in their king. . .

Let them praise His name in the dance;
let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.  Psalm 149:2,3

They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their children dance.  Job 21:11
Then David danced before the LORD with all his might . . . "In God's presence I'll dance all I want . . . Oh yes, I'll dance to God's glory - more recklessly even than this . . . I'll gladly look like a fool.  2 Samuel 6:14(NKJV), 21-22(The Message Bible)

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven . . . a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.  Ecclesiastes 3:1,4

The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying; "Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.  Again I will rebuild you, and you shall be rebuilt O virgin of Israel!  You shall again be adorned with your tambourines, and shall go forth in the dances of those who rejoice."  Jeremiah 31:3,4

Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old, together; for I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow.  I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the LORD.  Jeremiah 31:13,14

You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, to the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent, O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.  Psalm 30:11

Flamenco dancers:  Canada Day 2006, White Rock, British Columia
 Little girl:   Seattle Zoo, August 2006


  1. The little girl on her toes is priceless! What was the event?
    It looks like so much fun!

  2. The first two shots were from 2006 Canada Day Celebration at White Rock Beach. The little girl was a random shot at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington.

  3. Is your Canada Day Celebration akin to our 4th of July, I wonder?

  4. Delightful! By the time you had me at the little girl I was both laughing and crying for the beauty of your illustrated "Word"
