It’s that time again. Strictly Come Danc­ing has restarted! We can now ex­pect a pow­dered, se­quinned, sprayed ef­fer­ves­cence of chore­o­graphic fun ev­ery Satur­day for the next few months. I was cyn­i­cal, but a friend saw it dif­fer­ently. She said: “There’s enough bad­ness, sad­ness and tragedy in the world. It’s great to see the fan­tasy in this show.” She’s right. Strictly brings hap­pi­ness into our sit­ting rooms. I’m not cyn­i­cal any more. But some­times life breaks our hearts be­yond the restora­tive pow­ers of Strictly Come Danc­ing. Events and ill­ness crush and squeeze all en­joy­ment of life from us. But it helps us to re­mem­ber that God loves us and never leaves our side. In the Bi­ble, God says: “I will never fail you. I will never aban­don you.” (He­brews 13:5). His promise is to be more faith­ful than any friend. Try to re­mem­ber that. In the mean­time, if you can man­age, keep danc­ing!
