I’m about to tell you a ginormous secret that will revolutionize your dinner prep.
All meals taste better if the chef dances while preparing them.
You heard me. It’s a fact, Jack.
Wonder if it’s really true? Ask my kids about The Crazy Dance. The Crazy Dance turns a “meh” dinner into a 5 star culinary delight. But better than that, dancing dinner prep helps get my heart right.
When the daily-ness of life gets me grouchy – I know it’s time to crank up the tunes and lace up my dancing shoes (which happen to be a highly unattractive pair of sneakers.)
Sometimes you need a tranquil moment with your Savior. Other times you need to flail around like a dancin’ fool with the sound of resurrection hope thumpin’ through your veins.
Look at 2 Samuel 6:5. Various translations say that as the ark of the Lord was being carried back into Jerusalem David and all of Israel were:
- “energetically celebrating before the Lord,” (NET)
- “celebrating with all their might before the Lord,” (NIV)
- “making merry before the Lord,” (ESV)
God’s presence inspired David to dance with all his might (2 Samuel 6:14).
Why shouldn’t God’s presence in our kitchens cause us to do the same?
I am such a firm believer in the power of kitchen dancing that I want to help ramp up your selection of soul movin’ music.
I just purchased the entire collection of Seeds Family Worship CD’s so that I could share some with you! Have a listen to a sample of their “pep in your step” straight up scripture lyrics. “Seeds” believes in sharing, too, which is why every one of their CD’s comes with a duplicate for you to give to a friend. Just think — your family and mine, dancing our little hearts out to the same music while the water boils over again!
I’ll be giving away one “Seeds” CD a week for the next 7 weeks. Entering this week’s drawing is a breeze, just do one of the following in a comment (here or on my FB page):
- Admit that you already are a kitchen dancer.
- Admit that you really want to become a kitchen dancer.
- Tell us one of your favorite kitchen dance tunes.
Oh, and if you share this post on FB you can get another entry. Missionary friends…I will send this CD to the other side of the world if your name is drawn.
