You and your family have touched my life in so many ways. Ever the Encourager, your obedience to Jesus continues to allow the Holy Spirit to develop new and creative ways in me to share the unity, peace, love, and joy of the living Triune God with those in our community, and around the world. I recall a time when I was honored to be on the Learning Center Staff as a dance instructor. This was back when Addison was learning to dance on Pointe. I was teaching adult ballet in the Children's Ministry North Building (Back then we travelled around from classes in what is now the church offices, to the then SI offices and warehouse, to CMN and CMS buildings) and Addison was in the next room finishing her dance class. Suddenly, as we ladies were at Barre doing Grande Battements (glorified leg lifts), in you came into the middle of the classroom from the back door. Without missing a beat of the music, you joined us for a few Grande Battements before picking up Addison. God really loves dance for Him, and it is such a powerful way of sharing about Him and minstering to others. Thanks for the "Leg-Up" Pastor Jeff! And, as one who is well over 50, I can tell you life is just beginning for you! Happy birthday, and here's to 50 more!
