After 4.5 llloonnnggg weeks of emotional ups and downs, joys and sorrows, tears and laughter, wet and dry, we FINALLY had a dress ceremony! The dress ceremony is the symbol of Hope Reborn. It's a celebration not only of their physical healing, but also their emotional healing. A new dress is a symbol of a new life, a new hope, a new beginning.
"I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For He has clothed me with garments
and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness." Isaiah 61:10
So today we witnessed great delight and rejoicing with testimonies of healing; songs of hope and thankfulness; and tears of gladness. The pounding of the drums, the sweet melody of their voices, and the tears of joy falling from their faces still reverberate in my mind....it's a joyful noise to the Lord all the earth.
