I love to dance! I started taking ballet lessons when I was about 5 and have loved it ever since. For eight years I had the privilege of dancing with a Christian ballet group, which unfortunately doesn’t exist anymore, I loved being able to glorify God through dance.
As you might imagine dancing with a disability like Cerebral Palsy wasn’t the easiest thing in the world, but I always tried my best. It wasn’t always easy seeing girls younger than me be able to do splits, dance on pointe, dance much better than I could, etc. There were times when I got so frustrated with my physical limitations that I thought about quitting, but I loved it too much to stop. God has been able to use my dancing as a witness for him in so many ways over the years, and that makes it all worth it for me!
Ballet helped me a great deal with stretching. I learned so many stretches during my classes, some I still use today to stretch out my leg muscles when they get tight. I also have a feeling my muscles might be tighter than they are today if it hadn’t been for all the stretching I did then.
Day 51: Thank you Lord for giving me the ability to do ballet, not only for the physical benefits its given me, but allowing me to dance for your glory!
