Let Us Dance Together

We are back from the break, and happy to be back

81, SHOW  NOTES & COPYRIGHTS,  (Scheduled 12/8/2022)


Returning from November hiatus.

1.     The why

2.     The rest

3.     The rethinking

4.     The result

5.     The praying

Our first poem is titled 


     Let the little children dance to the Lord,

     And in doing so find the lost chord.

     May they dance a song of joy

     With love for God’s baby boy.

     The congregation will sing

     And the children will bring

     The pleasure of their smile,

     Leading us through our miles.

     May we all be that child

     Whose heart is so  mild,

     That we will sing and dance

     When given the chance.

     Yes, the children will teach us

     To be happy with Jesus

     As we sing and pray

     Each and every day.

     Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me 

     and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the 

     kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14 ESV)

The church I attend has chairs instead of pews and the music is mostly songs written

more recently than the hymns Dave and I were raised singing.  I have seen some of the younger children dancing as the songs are sung.  They have big smiles on their faces and some times the mothers join them.  After seeing this, the dancing and the smiles on the girls and mothers faces I was moved to write the poem.  I never thought this was inappropriate, but I realized that Sunday the children were dancing for God, for Jesus, and as they grow older that joy of dancing will follow them in their faith and the joy of celebrating the birth of God’s Son, our Savior, Jesus.  I then knew that they were experiencing worship more deeply than I did as a child when I had a coloring book and crayons, and sat on the kneeler with my coloring book on the pew.  I was, for the most part, unaware of my surroundings.  So, yes, let the children dance to God, to Jesus as we sing our songs of worship.

I made a card with the poem to give to the mother’s of 2 of the girls.  My 7 year old granddaughter, Aria, drew the picture.

The next poem is from God’s Rhyme, page 134.  It was written in 1984 and was our Christmas card that year.


Oh let us sing today

Filling our hearts with joy

The Prince of Peace has come

With the birth of this baby boy

For to us a child is born

To us a Son is given

And His name will be called

Wonderful Counselor

Mighty God

Everlasting Father

Prince of Peace

Sing with a joyful noise

So those around can hear

As our hearts now rejoice

In our Almighty God today

Father everlasting

In the birth of Your Son

We find the true reason

We do celebrate this season

Wonderful Counselor

The Messiah from birth

God’s gift to us on earth

May we return His love with joy

For to us a child is born

To us a Son is given

And His name will be called

Wonderful Counselor

Mighty God

Everlasting Father

Prince of Peace




May we fold our hands and pray, 

Pray that all God gives 

in the lives that we live, 

we will receive, 

as we believe 

that His Son was sent for us,

(His Son, the man we knew as)

the man we know as Jesus 

was sent to save our souls, 

save us from sin, 

lived among us without sin.

And that sometimes I imagine, or I can't imagine sometimes, what type of temptation he faced. But knowing the hatred people had for Him, I can still know. 

(That) I have the faith in God, His Father that He had some measure of it, faith, to lift me up this holiday season and focus on Him. It is only through Him that we are able to find eternal joy and that eternal joy that was born in the form of that baby boy.  That baby boy who was God's joy to give to us.  And I just pray that we can this holiday season, uh, keep that in mind and hopefully make Him the focus of all we are, of all we desire and all we do. 


Dear Heavenly Father we come to you in prayer as we end today’s podcast.  Dave and I thank You for leading us through the day and into tomorrow.  We thank You for all you have led us to and through.

We pray for our listeners and viewers; for their needs, healing and the salvation of those who have not yet accepted the gift of Your grace by faith.  

We pray, Lord, for this world in which we live.  Father, as Christians lead us to proclaiming the gospel where ever we are.  May we do so in a loving  way.  Lead us to the truth of the days we are living in.  

Dear Lord, prepare us and our listeners and viewers for the coming week.  We pray that it is You we live for and You who leads us.  As we walk with you  this week, may it be Your hand clasped around our hand so we may feel the grasp of Your love.

We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer.
