Preparing For The Promise

Today I hosted a work day for SHINE (Sharing Him IN Excellence), my girls’ dance group, to sew  costumes for their Christmas dance. All the girls are looking forward to Immanuel – The Promise,  a full length ballet in which the Nativity story will be beautifully expressed. Because this is the first year SHINE has performed in December, costumes are greatly needed. Thus, today we cut out twelve pairs of pants, several tunics, some angel overlays, sewed seven of the pants, made flags AND…. made a costume for my little Esther. She is so proud and so, so precious! I’ll admit it… I am proud too and so excited about the cuteness of the pre-ballets’ costumes. Can you imagine anything sweeter than sixteen adorable lambs dancing to Away in a Manger? My other girls did not begin dancing until they were much older (between 7 and 9) so I am loving every minute of dressing up my almost-three ballerina!

If you are a local friend, please put the evening of December 4th (time isn’t firm yet) on your calendar. The Promise will feature dancers of all ages, beautiful music, baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph, shepherds, angels, and of course, lovely little lambs!!! It will be held at the Harvest House (Living Water Christian Fellowship). It is sure to be an enjoyable outing for the entire family as well as one that certainly will remind all that Jesus is the reason for the season!

    Angela, I am sure it is not fair that she is featured in this post. I mean, she did nothing but get in the way. But.. she is cute is lamb ears so I couldn’t help myself.

    Precious pictures! My kids aren’t in a dance production, but our church children’s director does do a Christmas Pageant every year. It’s a blessing to all of us! I’m so thankful for all those who bless us with their time in these endeavors–they’re such undertakings!

    Thanks, Christine! Yes, God bless those teachers!
