Blessings of the Day

01 Oct

Today I was blessed with some wonderful moments between a mini-congress and a fiesta.  Here are the tidbits, then I shall be back to my new posting style! 😛

The first session I went to was about the Trinity.  There were so many amazing insights.  Many of the things I have heard and learned before.  The thing was, I was intrigued for a full hour and a half.

The second session I went to was Moving in God’s Grace.  It was about movement ministry.  We talked about all aspects of it and learned some movement to the Lord’s Prayer as well as “God Is” by Danielle Rose. 

The beauty of moving to “God Is” is that they only taught us the refrain and first verse.  The six of us attending were split in two groups.  My group got the second verse and the other group got the last.  Once we were done, we danced the entire song.  When is was the part that we did not do, we watched with are arms open.  At the end of the dance, I was shaking.  When my group did ours, one of the presenters was crying.  For those that know me, maybe I will do the dance for you sometime.

It is such a prayer, the movement ministry.  It is not dancers dancing in a show or trying to do something beyond their capabilities.  It is using the talent you have to add to a prayer moment.  If you are a more skilled dancer, there will be more involved.  If not, simplicity is just as well. 

During the session and when it was over, I was beaming.  Dancing is such a part of me that I cannot go with out.  It moves me, as does music.  I love it and pray I will always have it.

The third session was one that was media based.  There was more that could have been done with the use of media and talked about in that realm.  Despite that, we did a couple of scripture skits that reminded me of the retreats I have done in the past.  They we fun and funny. I enjoyed them.

At the fiesta, dancers from a studio performed.  None of the classes were beyond middle school age.  It was wonderful to see them, but sad because I miss dancing so much.  They did real well.

There was a first grader that I see every day at lunch, as I am with them when they eat, and her parents near where I was at one point during the festival.  The girl and I ended up dancing together.  It was so much fun and she was enjoying herself very much!  I must say I was enjoying it as well.  It was a good end to my night before coming back to the house.

These were many blessings that I was lucky to get today in a time when I think I really needed to have them.  Thank you Lord.  If you keep yourself open, you never know what can happen!
