So here's some randomness about me: I was once a dancer. Started taking ballet lessons at the age of 4 and continued studying various dance styles all the way through to college. I always thought it was so humorous though, that God gave me the ability to dance but He also gave me short stubby legs. I do not have the classic willowy dancer's body and I realized early on that my chances of making it as a professional were slim to none. So I got married and had kids and turned to choreographing school musicals, coaching volleyball and soccer and teaching PE. I still enjoy dance and I love to watch "So You Think You Can Dance".
When the Lily Pad Cards Design Team was given the opportunity to select from the gorgeous illustrations at A Day for Daisies I fell in love with the image of ballet slippers. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it too.
I love the traditional pale pink of ballet slippers. Although I never learned to dance "en pointe" I do still have my battered ballet slippers and I still slip into them to practice barre exercises occasionally.
This quote is especially meaningful to me as I had the chance to see the amazing Judith Jamison dance way back in 1976 with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
Please check out the beautiful and inspiring images at "A Day for Daisies" then go to Lily Pad Cards and be further inspired by the gorgeous work by the Design Team. I hope you join us for this color challenge.
Thought for the Day
~ Galatians 5:14-15 ~
"For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters.
But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature.
Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.
For the whole law can be summed up in this one command:
"Love your neighbor as yourself".
always keep dancing,
