I came across this song on the internet and truly felt the words calling to me. There was a media player there and I was able to listen to the song.  It was not the one I was seeking in my mind; The one I sought was an old hymn from church.  

"Lead me, Lord, lead me in thy righteousness;
make thy way plain before my face.
For it is thou, Lord, thou, Lord only,
that makest me dwell in safety. "

Both songs express it so well... be it the light that leads you  or just God making the way plain right in front of you... His way is the truth and the light and He will keep you safe.
This has been a week of unexpected prayer requests.  Ministers serving in Africa,  friends in need, readers of this blog with prayer requests, birthdays, family members of friends having emergency surgeries,  etc.  When I leave this computer at night and head to shower and climb into bed, it is usually nine or later.  When I start in the mornings it is usually about 6:30 or seven.  Terry and I hold you all up in prayer together at night, once again in the morning together and then through out the day I stop and go through my 'heart list' on my on several times. 

The path for most of these folks was unexpected when it came to health and surgeries.  Those are the things we cannot prepare for other than to know He walks with each of us through the trial.  When we have others praying for us  it is wonderful and you literally cannot have too many folks praying for you.  Vicky was talking about the hospital in Mt Pleasant was so good about doctors praying over you with the nurses before and after surgery and then even in your room.  Doctors kneeling beside your bed with a nurse on the other side, holding your hands and offering up prayers for healing.

We are in this together... and together we hold each other up in prayer, in sickness, health, in good times and bad times... together, always in prayer.

I spent most of today working on the painting above.  This was for a special horse owner up north and her beautiful horse Onyx.  She did not want a representational painting but one that captured energy and color and personality.  I told Terry I wanted to start flying to take pictures of the horses myself so I could personally meet them.  

Enjoy your dance today.

“If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love.”- John 15:10
