I'm baaack! At least for a post or two for now. This is the first time in weeks that I've felt that I had any time to devote to Dances in the Light. 8 weeks ago, I added video producer, videographer, and video editor to my daily activities, when my church turned to online worship in the midst of stay-at-home orders.
I am not a professional. I've never had a course on how to make a video. YouTube has become my friend. So, you can imagine that creating a video from start to finish has been a slow process for me. And producing two videos each week (one worship service and one Children's Church) has taken up most of my free time. They are far from professional, but our church members and other folks who are viewing them are LOVING them, so I feel as though I'm pleasing God.
Although I'm looking forward to the end of all of this, I'm not complaining. It's been a humbling, exciting experience for me. It's one of those "be careful what you ask for" things. I never like to ask God to use me because I'm afraid he'll send me to some third-world country and make me eat bugs or something equally distasteful. But lately I've tried to be braver and I've actually been praying the Prayer of Jabez and asking God for more.
I could almost hear God giggle with glee when I first started stepping out. I'm sure He's thinking "Finally!" And the rest is history.
So, bear with me for a while until this craziness passes. I have continued to make graphics for my church, so I'll try to post those when I have time, but no devotions until I have the time to do them right.
