4/30: praise Him in the dance on mountains of snow

scarf: H&M; earrings: honeymoon resort gift shop; flower hair clip: me

can we just focus for a moment on the fact that it is still snowing here?  the levels weren't really out of control until today.  but now?  now we have mountains.  mountains.  in that last picture, i feel the need to point out that i am indeed standing.  to make up for this gloomy, white day, i decided to bring a little sunshine to Fort Wayne with my official 30th pick.  i picked this up at my favorite second hand store, Clothes Mentor, for $4; brand name is Elle.

i was completely oblivious to the snow for the better part of the day.  i went to breakfast with one of the Young Life girls this morning, and then we headed to the high school to watch some more Young Life girls in their dance invitational.

ummm...hmmm...words.  yes, um, WOW.  those girls are so incredibly talented.  i think i felt a small fraction of what parental pride must feel like.  i showed up with my SLR in tow and ended up taking, literally, hundreds of pictures.  it was senior day, so things got a bit emotional for me.  i've really only gotten to know these girls well this year, but they have such a large piece of my heart.  i was so incredibly proud to not only watch them perform amazingly, but also to hear their bios read that only confirmed what incredible young women they are.  their hearts are as beautiful as their movement and i've been blessed to experience both.  i will be so sad to see them go, but am so excited to see them continue to grow and see how they impact this world of ours.  and you can bet they will...

Psalm 149:3  Let us praise Him with the dance
