Have a dressed up day!

Hope

This past weekend was busy and fun.  One of those where you don't stop but you don't seem to mind 'cause it's all good.

We closed with a Palm Sunday night singing at our church.

Izzy had been contemplating singing for a while now, since she did this at Christmas.

Her courage was the issue.  She asked Shelby several weeks back if she would sign a song while she sang it - thus, taking all eyes off of Izzy and placing them on Shelby.  Pretty good logic I thought.

Here is my lovely and brave daughter practicing singing her first ever complete song, Hope's Song.  It is a beautiful song sung by Rebecca St. James on the Veggie Tales Easter Carol dvd.

Shelby did sign it for her, and although I love to watch Shelby sign, my eyes were on Izzy.  It was a first for her and my stomach was doing butterflies for her nerves and my lips were whispering prayers for her strength and courage. 



Prayers answered.

Beautiful, Izzy (and Shelby!)... Marie, I can see why you are having to work hard to contain your vanity.

I hope y'all have a wonderful Resurrection Sunday!
