Was it the praise music? No.
Was it the message? No.
These things were nice, but not IT! So what was IT?
She is a 20 month old. To watch this child during worship will BLESS your heart!
There is quite a group of young ladies (elders to Emma all 7 and under) in our church, all sitting on the front row waiting for worship to start. Little Emma followed along and sat with them. Always looking to the "elders" to see if she was doing it right.
Then the MUSIC started... and SHE was UP!
Dancing! Skipping! Blessing MY heart!
and then... the elders followed her. They got up and were dancing. It was a sight to behold and brought so much delight. She was the leader and yet she was so small.
Then to watch all the young girls: Rory, making up moves and doing interpretive dance. Rheghan, spinning (till she got in trouble). Amelia's delight in sharing this experience with her friends. Just a sight! Unashamed worship and praise!
I honestly wanted to join them! I couldn't imagine what the church would think if I got up there and was skipping, stomping, and dancing with the girls Awww... to grow up!
I told her momma she must get this on video because they won't want to forget this.
Thinking more about this I don't want it to come off like this doesn't happen every week-it does. The girls dance and delight my heart. Something about Emma this week though. Being the FIRST one up. Not looking to see if ANYONE was joing her or if she was doing right. Just DANCING! Blessed me!
I tried to take pictures with my cell phone to use to remind me of this beautiful lesson. Not great quality. But still, so I never forget!
