It's Raining, It's Pouring

Ok, there actually hasn't been any rain today (it was a balmy 70* today). The title referrs other things in life... doesn't it seem that with trials, blessings, opportunities and ideas it feels like a drought when suddenly a downpour comes along? I have been thinking a lot about what I'll be doing for work (and self-satisfaction) next year. For a while it was a big fat question mark, then little ideas/possible options started popping up slowly, and then today at lunch it seemed that potential opportunites came pouring from the sky... literally multiple offers/suggestions came in a 15-minute span. It has given me a lot to think about and a lot to pray about, but I feel blessed to have opportunities come my way. We'll see what happens!

On a very different note, I encourage dancers and nondancers alike to watch this incredible video. A friend posted it on facebook and it wasn't until the credits that I realized some of my friends and teachers at BYU were involved in creating it. What a cool and beautiful piece of art. WATCH IT. I bet you've never seen anything quite like it.

Pray for Ashley

Dear anyone who reads this,

My student, Ashley, could really use your prayers. She is having some serious problems with her stomach and is meeting with a doctor in Austin on Monday. That is exciting but also a little scary as it could likely lead to another surgery. Yesterday she asked if I could pray for her. Today she told me, "I could use all the prayers I can get." So dear family and friends, will you keep Ashley in your thoughts and prayers?

Thank you! She has become a very special friend to me and I want her to have as much peace as possible as she faces these nerve-racking days ahead.
