Because I'm never going to get around....
to taking pictures of those yellow roses sitting on the dresser in Little Misses room, I figure that I might as well write about why those roses are there.
Friday night, Little Miss and her Sunbeam Choir performed in front of a SOLD OUT crowd at the Mesa Fine Arts Center with the EVMCO Choir. To say that she loved it is quite the understatement. My soul beamed as she marched on to stage, eyes glued to the conductor, ready to sing her heart out...and she did. Goosebumps COVERED my body as the whole choir (ages 4 through adult) accompanied by a full orchestra sang "He's Got the Whole World". Just sitting here thinking about it, the goosebumps return! What a joy to watch her! She can't wait for choir to start again....she likes it better than piano and dance!
Someone else in our family enjoyed the performance just as much as I did. As the adult choir performed the most beautiful arrangement of "I Know That My Redeemer Lives", I looked down the row and saw tears streaming down Bear's face...tears just dripping off his cheeks. I hugged him and asked if he was all right. He nodded, yes, and said, "I just feel the Spirit so strong." As we drove away from the concert that night, he asked if he could join the choir. My soul beamed just a little bit more. Okay...a LOT more!
I'm grateful for beautiful music and for how it helps us to feel of the love our Savior has for us!
