A sneak peek . . .

The party was fantastic! Here is a little sneak peek to get you excited - I should have the rest of the photos by tomorrow. . . 

  • The party was fantastic by the way! And I was thrilled to be a part of it. I will tell you all about it when I get the rest of the photos. In the meantime, here are some lovely lessons from the movie. They are not mine but they are nice and I thought worth sharing. I found them here. xo

You can't run away from your troubles. 

  • Good always triumphs over evil.

  • Life's journey is too hard alone, so take some good friends along with you.

  • Scary evil things usually aren't that scary and evil after all. Most fears will dissolve when faced (a bucket of water took care of the witch!).

  • Sometimes the biggest and most powerful people (whether wizards or celebrities) turn out to be fakes--they are simply human like the rest of us.

  • If you don't know where you are going, just "follow the yellow brick road" (signs and guidance from God). Think of your Personal Connector Word to God as a sort of "yellow brick road."

  • There are forces for good in this universe (Glinda, the good witch) who are always looking out for you and who will help you along your way.

  • Animals make some of the most loyal companions (How 'bout that Toto!).

  • Sometimes people follow the wrong leaders out of fear. (The witch's footsoldiers seemed as happy as Dorothy when the witch finally melted.)

  • Sometimes your way to your goal isn't God's way. At first, you may be disappointed. But then you will find God's way is even better! (Dorothy thought the Wizard would return her to Kansas. When she discovered he was just a man, she then thought he would return her via balloon. What she discovered was God's way was simpler and more direct--a click of the heels!).

  • You can get blown away in a tornado--house and all--and the next day find yourself in paradise. Storms always pass. Good things lie ahead.

  • Life is a dream. We learn our lessons and what really matters through our life experiences. But, in the end, we "wake up" (that's when we return to the divine, the light, God). The important thing is to learn and grow, as Dorothy did.

It looks like it turned out great! I love Dorothy's legs hangin' out on the table :-) can't wait to see the whole thing. Thanks for all of the great reminders, too. Excellent way to start out my day!

Who could imagine a Wizard of Oz party to turn out, not only more fabulous than could be imagined, but with depth and meaning. If I had been scrapbooking this for my 4 year old I would be sure to add the comments for Life lessons at the end. What a memory!
