This month I’m featured in the
#REALCHURCHladies section of
Leading Hearts Magazine!
All my life I’ve been mesmerized by female aerialists,
athletes who perform graceful dances of
balance, strength and flexibility on the trapeze, ropes, or rings.
Audiences gasp in awe and applaud with delight
as we watch lithe women spin and soar
dangerously high above the ground.
Fear prevents most of us
from ever attempting the elements
of an aerialist’s routine.
We appreciate them,
but are happy to sit in the bleachers
and admire from a distance.
Consider the practice hours that an aerialist spends
developing her natural talent.
She has to work with trainers and technicians,
nutritionalists and a safety net.
It takes a whole lot of support people for an aerialist to perform her act.
The Body of Christ is
supposed to cooperate like that.
Throughout the Bible,
God directs us to be willing to teach, assist and support
those who are
widowed or orphaned.
