I am a Dancer


I dance.  All.  the.  time.  This is definitely another innate trait that God designed.  I cannot hold still.  Especially when it comes to music, and any kind of music.  And when I don’t hear music, I make music with my feet and hands.  I dance anyway.  It is almost like I don’t have a choice, so why not roll with it.

Luckily, I grew up around dance.  I remember learning to dance the polka with Grandma in her living room.  I remember dance lessons as a child.  I remember the first boy/girl dance (I was totally annoyed at the swaying.)  I remember my mom and dad going to dances every Sunday night to waltz and such.  All of those experiences gave me permission to let loose and dance.

Are you a dancer?  Do you feel music?


Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.

Toe tappin’



That is my sister, Sarah, by the way.  🙂

Do you know a tapper?  If yes, then you know this is true.  I STILL will tap dance on a good tile or hardwood surface.  My toes and heels just can’t handle it.  Phoebe is the same way.

Such a joyful noise.

The Bible tells us to make a joyful noise, with tambourines and voices, all sorts of instruments.  I use my toes, snap my fingers, sing, laugh, talk, yell, and more.  Yes, I make a joyful noise.  My house is loud because I married a loud guy and have raised loud, joyful children.  I think we are known for that, and I am completely okay with being the loud people..as long as we are also known as those happy Nelsons.  People always say they know when we are at the ball field because they can hear us from the parking lot.  🙂

Go forth and make a veritable plethora of noise in praise of your blessings today, tapping or however.  Be an echo in the world, a song that leads others to the joy available through faith.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
