Our Weekly Message for February 26, 2003

Greetings special friends,

Well, Mother Nature hit Texas and Oklahoma this week with a bang including ice, sleet and freezing rain. Most of the schools have been out this week due to the conditions. We are finally thawing out a little. I suppose this was God's way of expressing His feelings about the TAKS tests!

Here are some thoughts for the day from Jim Rohn's E-zine:
Sowing and Reaping

"You must get good at one of two things: sowing in the spring or begging in the fall."

"God has the tough end of the deal. What if instead of planting the seed you had to make the tree? That would keep you up late at night, trying to figure that one out."

"Plant, don't chant."

One of my good friends always says, "Things don't just happen; things happen just."

We have over the halfway point with being 6 weeks into contest season with 4 more weeks to go including our Nationals at the end of March. We continue to see some amazing teams and new teams starting all the time. How wonderful it is to see such talent from week to week, at different venues across the country. Keep up with the latest schedules and results on the Contest Page of our web site.

Also, don't forget to resource the DanceUSA.com web site for a directory and links to various companies in our industry including Tote Unlimited, Biogime, Doughmakers, Curtain Call Costumes and many more.. You can also resource our Links page too!

If you are interested in purchasing any videos from our 2003 contests, contact Bill at Spirit Video Productions at spiritvdo@aol.com.

Below are a few passages on contentment. I needed some relief to my stress this week so this one hit a cord with me as I hope it will with you. Have a wonderful week, and, as always, please keep in touch.

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."
