I asked my friend, Kayla Bingham, to tell me her favorite dancing song from this past year.  After hearing the lyrics, I thought the words would be a gift to several of you who have been in your own challenging seasons.  So, I asked Kayla if we could do a little video project.  She agreed.

Kayla is currently dancing with  Odyssey Dance Theater in Utah, but when she was back in Colorado for Christmas, my son Isaac and I met her at Synergy Academy, a local dance studio. We filmed her interpretation of the song, “Madly in Love with You” by  singer/songwriter, Sean McConnell.

(When you watch, if you look carefully on the left side of the mirror wall, you can see me laying on the floor and Isaac standing by a tripod. We are trying our best to be invisible.)

This is what the dancer said about the music:

“The song gets me. It reminds me of the times where God feels silent and you get desperate and would do just about anything to hear or see or understand. You know that feeling? When you’re almost frustrated and tears are welling up and you feel like you’re bursting at the seams, and all you want in the world is for God to feel close. That’s what this dance feels like to me.
” ..I know you wish you could hear me, sometimes it’s so hard to do…but every morning’s sunrise says: I’m madly in love with you”

Thanks, Kayla.  We’ll be watching the sunrise differently …

I know you wish you could see me
That’s the way it has to be
Someday you’ll understand,
Don’t you lose your faith in me

I know you wish you could hear me
Sometimes it’s so hard to do
But every morning sunrise it says
I’m madly in love with you
Yes I’m madly in love with you

Sean Mcconnell, “Madly in Love with You

    God’s timing is always so poignant.

    I’m about to paint a painting related to our need to REVEL in God. And I struggle to know what on earth it means to revel. And then, what does it mean to revel in a being? And then, what if that being is invisible?

    Just this morning the sunrise was particularly stunning, and I felt sure God was telling me that reveling in the beauty of a sunrise is really reveling in Him.

    Then, to hear the words that perhaps a sunrise is really His voice speaking glorious truth to me…deep breath. Thank You my Father.

    Adina, it’s a joy to see that there was truth in it specifically for you.

    So. Beautiful.
    Really, really grateful – for capturing the tenderness of this song, the passion of expressing it in dance.
