Our tiny dancer is growing up right before our eyes. She has come so far from those first dance steps in a Mommy and Me class at 18 months of age where she was just learning to follow directions and wouldn’t leave her mothers side to venture onto the steps that would carry her across the floor on her own. It’s so hard to believe she will be 5 this winter. She is quite the little red headed firecracker. She loves to sing and dance. She dances around the house, twirling, bowing, and singing the songs she learned at Sunday school in what they call the Big God Story. It is just precious to hear her retell the stories and know that she understands the grace and mercies of God at such a young age. It makes me think of when Jesus said to his Disciples in Luke 18:16, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” We are his children and he delights in our dancing before his throne even as adults.
