This week we have all been struck by the suffering of the Haitian people...and we have been sobered once again that life is truly a precious gift. In light of that, I want to start by saying LET'S really PRAY for them...the children and mommies, the pregnant women, the men who are broken, the women who have been widowed...Jesus, be very present in their time of need!
This weekend we will officially kick off "Talitha" dance company which means that all 15 of us will be dancing from Friday at 5:00 until Sunday at 4:00 (with only a few breaks to eat and sleep in-between!) I want to ask for your prayers for this as well...for us to really connect on a deep level with one another, for the dances to come together beautifully, for joy and freedom as we dance, and for Jesus to really enjoy our worship this weekend! Also, on a more personal note: I am 11 weeks post prego body...so please pray for my physical strength and stamina to dance this much! I am the "leader" of this group of dancers, so please pray that I lead well too. I want to love them like my own daughters and I really do consider this opportunity as a gift to me....I really want to bring these "daughters" to Jesus this weekend.
In light of this, I think my family has been a bit attacked with sickness and mental/emotional fatigue. Specifically, please pray for Kiva's little tummy. She is having a hard time going poo...and we just need her to be relieved! Yep, potty talk, but real life! Thanks for that!
And to finish off...here is a really cute baby Kiva on the way to the park yesterday. Seriously! Her cheeks rest on her chest they are so squeezable!
