Why I dance…

I like to dance. I love to dance. I have danced ballet for two and a half years, and have taken pointe for six months. As a little girl I would twirl around and dance to any music (preferably the Nutcracker) that came on. One of the many things I appreciate in my parents is they didn’t just throw me in a ballet class when I was three just because that’s what cute little girls do; they waited until I was old enough to make my own choice and let me find out what my passion was and how I wanted to use it.

This has really strengthened my love for ballet and even though waiting may have been hard sometimes I really appreciate it now. I like the line in the song “untitled hymn” by Chris Rice where he sings “and when the love spills over, music fills the night, when you can’t contain your joy inside; dance for Jesus, dance for Jesus, dance for Jesus”. God has given me this temple, my body, and I love to be able to express myself and my love for Him with it! You may wonder why I am talking about dance all of a sudden… it snowed here and is very icy so dance class is cancelled. I had to talk to someone…

Dancing for Jesus!
