Key Verse: Exodus 15:20

Then Miriam, the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the trimbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.

Remember Miriam? She was the one who 80 years before, as the older sister of Moses, watched over the little basket floating in the Nile. She arranged for Moses’ mother to care for the baby on behalf of the sister of Pharaoh who found the baby in the bulrushes. Now, about 90 years of age, she prophesies, puts those words to song, plays the timbrel, and leads the dance. Amazing! We need to celebrate too! God has fulfilled His purposes in the past; He is doing so right now; He will do so unfailingly in the future! He provides fresh water and promises, “I am the Lord who heals you!”


Lord God, You are the great “I am” who heals me. I rest on Your promise for physical healing. I celebrate Your deliverance from the slavery of sin. I praise and worship You for who You are. I sing to You, Lord, for You have triumphed gloriously! Amen!


It’s now 5:45 a.m. I’ve just spent five minutes looking for our timbrel (tambourine) which I know we have somewhere. Later, when Norma-Jean awakens, she’ll know where it is. I plan to play the timbrel and dance. I’ll ask her to play on the piano a dancing song that the Cameron Family from Scotland sang and danced to on the 100 Huntley Street TV show about 25 years ago. Right now I’ll contain my exuberance and finish this blog, getting it ready for posting at just for fresh manna and spring water for you. We’ve been having trouble sending you the e-mail edition of this blog on time. The company that does it has some troubles; however, I’ve been promised that the problem will be solved by Sept. 15th. Please keep rejoicing! My dance later won’t be as pretty as Miriam’s I’m sure, but Norma-Jean will laugh and she might even dance with me.

Yours to celebrate with Miriam and you,


REMINDER: If you are reading the email version and wish to post a comment on my blog, go to and “Leave a Reply.” Please tell me how you are celebrating God’s goodness. I love Miriam’s words, “THE GREATNESS OF YOUR EXCELLENCE” (verse 7a).

  1. Way to go, David … dance!! I think I’ll take some time out today and do the same! Norma-Jean is filled with music and song. All is well! P.T.L!

  2. Thanks David; for reminding me to celabrate the Lord more it is impossible to give him the praise He deserves.Praise The LORD Praise You JESUS

  3. One of my favourite memories is you being body surfed while 500 hundred pilgrims danced at the House of Abinidab. Keep dancing before the Lord and while you do, think of our dear friend now with the Lord Doug Burke. He had such a jubilant spirit and all the right moves. God bless you David and Norma Jean.

  4. yes! dance David! I think of another David who danced before the Lord too, only his wife was not happy with him for it, unlike Norma-Jean, who I am sure will love to join you in your dance. It is wondeful to be joyful unto the Lord.

    P.S. A few posts ago you mentioned that some readers were getting your 100 Words in other places then their inbox. Mine comes to my deleted file! And sometimes does not arrive in the morning but later in the day.

  5. ..I enjoy your Blog every day,u enjoy your dance this morning, nothing like dancing before the Lord, what a glories day when we all dance before the king of kings !!!! be encourage in the Lord today, he is your strength & helper !!

  6. Joyful for sure …no matter what …we come into the court with Praise & Thanksgiving… He is the Great ( I am ) as we celebrate what He has Done, and is Doing, and will continue to do ….as we journey… in Healing of Body..for His Purpose and in His Time….Priaise throught it all…
    The Best is Yet to Come….

    Blessings as we go forward……in His Name…..

  7. It’s great to hear you are dancing, David. I did the same. I blew my shofar, put on some Messianic songs, took my little souvenir cowbell and had a good time dancing and praying in tongues in my kitchen. I am rejoicing and trusting God for great things. I expect Norma Jean danced with you!

  8. Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love; Hearts unfold like flow’rs before Thee, Op’ning to the sun above. Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the doubt of dark away; Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day!
    (Henry J. van Dyke, 1907)

  9. How wonderful the name of David,
    He danced before the Lord because of the Joy of the Lord.
    I , myself feel this Joy in my life.
    The Holy Spirit gives freely.
    Age is no barrier,
    Thankyou David
