They Danced Their Little Hearts Out

In a recent post The Gift That Keeps Giving, I mentioned I have been downloading pictures from my girls’ childhood. This has been a daunting task transferring old photos to electronic format. While it has been a lot of work it has also been very pleasurable too.

Some of my fondest memories of my girls were centered around their involvement in dance.  They both were enrolled in tap, ballet, and jazz and were passionate about each. In addition to their group routines they both performed solos. So for the dance recital each year they both performed group tap, group ballet, group jazz and a solo. This meant eight costumes per recital. Needless to say, things were always a little hectic trying to get their solo costumes adorned with sequence and beads. You know, I just realized this may have been where my love of bling began. LOL!!!

It was amazing how they never tired of dancing. Their feet were going 24/7. And to this day Brandi reminds me of the time I wacked her in the head with a hair brush so she would stop tapping long enough for me to get her hair into a pony tail.  They would tap on the coffee tables, perform jazz in the driveway, and ballet in front of the TV (during the climax of the movie of course).

Make-up, hair, costume, lights, camera, and action…The curtain rises and they would begin to dance their little hearts out as if no one was watching…

 After hours of lessons, practice, and competition they have a huge sense of accomplishment, friends, memories and I have pictures!!!

The Best Seat In The House

My Husband and I enjoy  theatrical performances, ballet, musicals, orchestra, opera, and choral concerts. We try to choose our  seating to ensure we are able to see and hear as much as possible.  We want the best seats in the house although they are not always within our reach financially so we feel comfortable and safe (I don’t care for heights). 

There is one seat I am guaranteed in life. It is always available and I never have to make reservations. It is comfortable and very safe.  It is in the Hand Of God…

In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:10

How awesome is that? In His hand we are held.  In His hand I am comfortable, protected, and alive. 

We Are Never More Than an Arms Length Away Sitting in the Hand Of God! 

And it is with His hands He draws us to Himself embracing us and holding us near to His heart.

I Have the Best Seat In the House! Come Join Me…
