For I know the plans I have for you,
declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
A picture was
taken of my feet the last time I wore my pointe shoes. I commissioned my dear friend, Robin Kelley from Houston Tx.,
to put them on canvas.
Her gift of artistry conveys this special moment perfectly. Once
she was finished, we discussed a name for the project. I was led to Jeremiah 29:11.
God knew my exact
path 37 years ago when I began my dance journey. He was preparing me for
this moment in my life.
Reflecting on this oil painting provides peace in knowing that I am where I am supposed to be and
doing what I was born to do. My purpose is far from complete, but this portrait reminds me of how far I
have come in this journey that has been so beautifully orchestrated by God.
