Lord Of The Dance

Chose dancing clothes and party hat
with care, and wear them well,
for this might be the outfit that
you soiree in, in hell.
It's no sin to hold dismay
at this state of affairs,
but better far to be quite gay,
not putting on false airs,
but meeting monsters with a smile
and wave and friendly "Hi!",
while you're knowing all the while
that you will never die,
but rise from this, the worst of graves,
dancing with the One who saves.

The Five Minute Friday prompt this week is KNOW. Yeah.

This week has SUCKED. So please forgive the attitude, but I will go down fighting, red in teeth and claw.

Know this clearly, all who hear,
know this, and avert your eyes,
know that there's a time for fear,
and know ye that somebody dies.
Know that there is nothing gentle,
know that there are guns and knives,
know this is the fundamental
way we're fighting for our lives.
Know there will be no surrender,
know so long as I have breath
that I shall be pleased to render
hate unto a cancer'd death,
and when on Heaven's streets I tread,
even God will bow His head.

And here are The Dubliners, with Lord Of The Dance.

Can you dance while eating ice cream?

  1. This is really good, and a clear reminder that our loved ones will go to hell unless they come to faith first. We should be praying for them and seeking every opportunity to witness to them.
    God bless you.

  5. I hate cancer. It's such a beast and it affects each person different and there are so many different types. I know SO many people who are struggling with it, some quite serious (brain), others not quite as serious (arm), but regardless, it's all scary. I will never know why people have to suffer with it, but I know that even in this God has a plan. I am so sorry this week was awful. I hope next week is much better.

    1. Cindy, thank you...I have kind of a love-hate relationship with this monster.

      It hurts, it's humiliating, and it does its best to cut off hope.

      But it's also given me a secure sense of purpose, in writing to offer hope to others, and it's introduced me to a very personal God.

      I would not change what has happened.

      God's here. I'm not alone. And thanks to cancer, I know that I never was.
