Seek, and then keep seeking

An empty row of seating in a church. A sign hangs from a barrier blocking access to the row. The sign reads, "'When you seek me, you will find me.' Just not in this pew."
“When you seek me, you will find me, when you will seek me with all your heart.” –Jeremiah 29:13

I attended a concert on Friday night. Due to COVID restrictions, the venue needed to bar access to every other row of seating. They did so with humour.

The sign above made me laugh, and think.

We often seek some wonderful new event or item for our lives, and we expect it to appear immediately and directly in our path. POOF!

Not so fast. Maybe we can find what we seek, but not right away and not in the first place we look.

Seek, and then keep seeking, with the whole heart.

I hope you dance, at least some of the time

“. . . when you get the choice to sit it out or dance | I hope you dance . . .”

From “I Hope You Dance,” written by Mark D. Sanders and Tia Sillers, performed by Lee Ann Womack

Some neighbourhood kids came up with a fun activity. They posted two scarecrows on their lawn with a sign:

“You must dance within the guards (scarecrows) or you will be TICKLED by the guards. If you can’t think of a dance, do the chicken dance. From someone. Ha ha ha ha ha!”

My son and his girlfriend stopped during their walk and danced.

My husband and I danced.

I have to admit that I didn’t dance every time I passed the sign. I go by it every day on my walk, twice.

But I did dance, at least some of the time.

It felt great.
