Dancing with Joy
smiles showed the "child likeness” that Jesus speaks about in the Gospels.
I could not speak Spanish so was concerned that I would not be able to communicate. But suddenly I felt someone pulling my arm. When I turned around there was a petite woman in a white blouse, floral purple skirt and wearing green, white and red striped socks.
Her eyes twinkled and there was a very joyful smile on her face. She took my hand and started dancing. It was such a heart -warming moment – to experience her joy. I easily got into the swing of the dance and soon another lady joined us. I realized in a flash that it did not matter that I couldn’t speak Spanish and they couldn't speak English – our hearts were expressing what no words could speak. It was a wonderful time being dance partners for each other!
