Everyone needs a little Light sometimes....

"This Little Light" is a great dance by Jo Thompson-Szymanski
written when she first became ill. (please continue to pray for Jo ~ bone marrow transplant)
We use the song "This Little Light" recorded by Scooter Lee. ~ it's fun ~ great energies ~
We wave our arms up in the air (to the "Light") while wishing folks well ...


Please let me know if there are people that need to be added or changes that need to be made...

Thanks, Lynne lynnes-lines@juno.com
