You are My Hiding Place
Last night we were accorded the fantastic opportunity to attend the Ballet Magnificat's performance of "The Hiding Place". Words cannot describe the beauty and awe inspiring adaptation of this true story to the way the Omega Company, a company of Magnificat Christian ballet dancers, brought this to life on stage. I am SO very sorry that you of Teen Mania in Garden Valley who had the chance to attend this did not take that opportunity. We took my cousin, Larry Snyder and his wife, Sue, with us as they were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. Larry and Sue had helped us once again this year in hosting our Christmas tea and we wanted to bless them with this.
This is Sue on the right and Kelly on the left with Elaine in the middle. Sue had helped me all day (this year AND last..with food preps...I couldn't have done it without her!)
The girls who performed the ballet danced so beautifully and what a joy to see a ballet with no men and girls in beautiful dresses that glorified the Lord. Our hearts were stirred as we relived this story of Hope in the midst of suffering. The girl in the white dress is Betsy, Corrie Ten Boom's sister, dancing before the Lord after she has died in the Concentration Camp of Ravensbrook. It was so beautiful and moving! I hope you enjoy the You Tube clip.
