Izzy on the other hand has truly enjoyed every moment. As hard as it's been for the littlier ones, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Izzy. I've watched her grow so much over the last weeks. She went from being unsure of being on stage in front of people to outright shining in the spotlight. It's been a sweet mother-daughter experience for us. And I have to say as I stood there watching her do the "ring around the rosey scene" with Jesus I wept. I was overcome with emotion. Seeing her smiling ear to ear...oh my what a sight.
Then at the end of the performances there's a response time...an altar call of sorts. Well at the end of every performance there was always a huge line at the crosses. Knowing that lives were changed by The Thorn was truly what makes it all worth it. My baby girl being blessed by it is just icing on the cake. People coming to know Jesus...well, that's the real deal and I'm really grateful we stuck it out.
Thank You Lord for this experience....I too have been blessed by it.
