Creation Dances

I've been reading Genesis 1, or rather studying it, I came across this in a commentary and it just made me want to get up, jump up and down and dance around the place....

"’Blessing’ in the Bible is a word of vitality, creativity and fulfilment. 
The whole of the on-going life of creation is the outworking of God’s blessing. 
The whole creation is now caught up into the divine blessing – 
there is an exuberance, a delight, in creation. 
God’s blessing is the music of creations dance.” 
(Atkinson)

I just love that last line.
I don't know what about it makes me feel so full of excitement but it does.
