We just returned home from a fun day with the family in the Big City. Lydia's confirmation was today, as well as Elisabeth's ballet recital. We were not at the church for the confirmation, but at their home for lunch and a nice time with the family. Later in the afternoon, we attended the ballet performance, which was quite spectacular. There were probably about 400+ people at today's performance, and there was also a performance last night.
It was fun to see Elisabeth in her element, along with all the other young people involved. The music and costuming were amazing. Ambassador Royale, paralleling Tchaicovsky's Nutcracker, had several Tchaicovsky tunes from Nutcracker, along with others. Two were distinctively Manheim Steamroller arrangements by Chip Davis. The last song, 'He Reigns' by Newsboys, is one of my very favorites. What a venue in which to bring glory to God and the message of hope that is in Christ.
