The Party's Over...

OK maybe not the party, but dance recital is over! What a crazy week... dress rehearsals, photo shoots, first time recital moms trying not to cry tears of happiness and veteran recital moms not even bothering to hold back the tears. And now, it's over. Well, until next week when the new season starts and we go again! HA! But for one week, no dance... no tap shoes... no costumes... no make up or tons of hair spray... no trying to figure out how to get a high, curly ponytail into a low, left bun. ;) Enjoy your week off, dancers!

Here are a few pictures from our week in completely random order... eventually there will be video too... someday. ;)

 Kennedy ready for company pictures

 Kennedy, Jordyn and Hannah... beautiful flowers

 Lila, Kennedy and Miranda... the pink ladies ;)

Beauty takes time. ;)

 The Mini Company (minus one) ready to perform for the last time 

 A little bit of silliness after dress rehearsal! ;)

There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good.

Great photos as always!
It's a privilege to be able to pray for you!
Psalms 31:14-16, 24 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake. (24) Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

What great pictures! Good job Kennedy and Keeghan. We just had Ava's recital and Arline's is in a couple of weeks (hers is less work on my part LOL). Hope your summer is off to a great start! Oh, and I love that Keeghan is dancing, so is Alec. I keep forgetting, his first recital is coming up too (with Arline).

It's quite possible..that you have THE most beautiful children I know! That top photo of Kennedy is gorgeous! And, your Baby Boy. Wow! He is darling. I love the little girl who was swooning over him!
I'm praying for sweet Kellsey and her Oncology appt/results. Why? Why does one tiny girl have to endure so much pain in her life? I know she can't feel it, so I mean in regards to the hard, emotional stuff. I am so happy that Kellsey has a family to love her through it all!
Bless you All! ~ Jo

Know that I'm always here praying!
Isaiah 40:28-31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

When things look their worst, it's when the Lord works the best! Praying!
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Am sharing two verses today. The second verse is God's own interpretation of the first verse. When dealing with all the "floods" and vehement winds beating upon us, there is only One Sure Foundation. Praying so as you face these "floods."
Luke 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

What tremendous comfort we can take from eyewitness testimony! Praying!
1 John 1:1-4 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
