Cinderella in Nashville Show Hope 5/2010
Sherrie and I met in Nashville to support Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman's Show Hope production of Cinderella. We had an incredible weekend. Some really funny moments like when the clerk at the food counter said he could not tell us apart. We must have looked confused because he said it again and said well, you are twins! Funny since we are not biologically related. Although we are sisters in Christ which makes us true sisters through adoption!
The production of Cinderella was beautiful and funny! They took the classic and put a comedic spin to it. Steven and Mary Beth Chapman came out before the show began and shared their hearts. But again, funny moments like Mary Beth ribbing her husband about being too old to play prince charming. That sort of thing makes them so "real". The show closed with SSC singing with a group of children-SO WONDERFUL!!!I will admit that Sherrie and I were a bit giddy when we met Mary Beth. We did talk for a few minutes and mostly likely sounded a bit cooky but we just really wanted to let her know how much she is prayed for and thought about. We went to the after party and met Steven Curtis Chapman and again, what a "nice, nice" person. I mean it may sound silly to say but when I talked to them I just walked away with the feeling that I would just want to "hang around with them". When I told Greg he said, so are they coming to the beach this summer with us. Hum, I did not get a chance to invite them but they are sure welcome any time. I so hope that working at MBHOH is in my future. When my kids saw the photo of me, Sherrie and Mary Beth they said we all look alike. I said that is funny everyone said that about me and Sherrie, they said no ALL 3 of you. Hee HEE.I think we all look alike because we all share the love for our children and for God's orphan children. Once that feeling has taken hold of your heart there is no letting go. Thank you Chapman family for all you do to further God's kingdom. Mary Beth, I consider you a sister through adoption.
