Our Weekly Message for August 18, 2004

Hello everyone and welcome back to school!

I hope each and every one of you had a fantastic summer and ready to kick off the school year. Our ADTS Summer Camps were all fantastic with the best routine curriculum we have ever had.

We are already looking ahead to our 2005 ADTS Contests and hoping to see many of you at one or more events. Our Nationals will feature more international teams from Japan and Australia in addition to the college teams and 100+ high school and junior teams.

Here are some thoughts for the day:
"Dance isn't what I do, it is who I am."
"Boredom is simply the lack of imagination." Julie O. Smith
"Talent is never enough. With a few exceptions, the best players are the hardest workers." Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, Pro basketball player
"Learn to listen. Opportunity could be knocking at your door very softly."
Frank Tyger

Below is a special passage geared towards women....either you or a woman close to you. It is a profound passage that will certainly make you think.

Have a wonderful, blessed week, and, as always, please keep in touch.

Woman's Blessing

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the ONE I can, and the wisdom to know it's ME!

Woman to Woman Encouragement

Someone will always be prettier. They will always be smarter. Their house will be bigger. They will drive a better car. Their children will do better in school. And their husband will fix more things around the house. So let it go, and love you and your circumstances. Think about it.

The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart. And the most highly favored woman on your job may be unable to have children. And the richest woman you know -- she's got the car, the house, the clothes --might be lonely. And the word says if I have not Love, I am nothing.

So, again, love YOU. Love who you are right now and let God be your barometer. Mirror Him. Look in the mirror in the morning and see how much of God you see. He's the only standard and even when you come up short; He will not leave you or forsake you. Smile and may God continue to bless you.

"I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!"

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor.

"The one who kneels to God can stand up to anything."

"Winners make things happen. Losers let things happen."

"To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world."
