Please allow me one more child related mom heart passion to bless and be blessed. My daughter, Madeline, was born dancing (seriously), and has pretty much danced continuously for 16 years: on stages, in class, in the kitchen, down the grocery aisles..(want to see?) I am blessed whenever I watch; but of all the Nutcrackers and Spring performances and competitions, do you know my favorite place to see her dance? At the alter of our church. When she is truly giving back the gift that God has given her, well, her whole being just transforms. It's like she's dancing with angels in another world. It thrills me that this is what she wants to do with her life; to use her dance for Jesus. This month she is taking more steps towards this dream as she is dancing with Ballet Magnificat in Mississippi. This company that she so wishes to be a part of dances all over the world bringing God's message of love and redemption to all they meet. I do a lot of ballet paintings, and have always used whatever proceeds to keep her in pointe shoes and lessons as she works toward this magnificent dream. So this particular auction area is not for a charity in the traditional sense, but we would consider it a tremendous blessing. Please join me next weekend, July 19 and 20 at 800Blessings. Questions?
