It's Leap Year!



I don't why I made this particular connection, but those who know me are just laughing and shaking their heads saying, what's new?  but anyway, I am thinking about this quote from the movie Footloose:

Ren: [addressing the town council, reading from his notes in the Bible] "From the oldest of times, people danced for a number of reasons. They danced in prayer... or so that their crops would be plentiful... or so their hunt would be good. And they danced to stay physically fit... and show their community spirit. And they danced to celebrate." And that is the dancing we're talking about. Aren't we told in Psalm 149 "Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song. Let them praise His name in the dance"? And it was King David - King David, who we read about in Samuel - and what did David do? What did David do?
[paging frantically through Bible]
Ren: What *did* David do?
[audience laughs]
Ren: "David danced before the Lord with all his might... leaping and dancing before the Lord."
[smacks table in front of Reverend Moore]
Ren: *Leaping* and *dancing*.
[stands up straight]
Ren: Ecclesiastes assures us... that there is a time for every purpose under heaven. A time to laugh... and a time to weep. A time to mourn... and there is a time to dance. And there was a time for this law, but not anymore. See, this is our time to dance. It is our way of celebrating life. It's the way it was in the beginning. It's the way it's always been. It's the way it should be now. 

What leaps will you be making this year?  Are you leaping and dancing before the Lord?

  1. Good to see you here, Terri! I tried taking a peek at February in pictures, but I'm too old to see them well. Overall, if I had to guess, I'd say you enjoyed a good month. I loved the story of the little girl "retty to lurn." She's doing so well being able to communicate in writing!
