Make of our hands, one hand,
Make of our hearts, one heart.
Make of our vows, one last vow;
Only death will part us now
My title is from the song "Tonight" from West Side Story. And tonight wasn't just any night for us, because we went to see the play. So come along with me and watch some highlights. We will start with a picture of the audience right before the play started. In the front is Phil and our friend Linda. The last two pictures are in the cast receiving line after the play. Our beautiful friend Dorothy, and another actor examining the "blood" on his shirt from the fight scene. It was great fun, and we had forgotten how many popular songs came from this one play. "Maria", "I Feel Pretty", and "Somewhere" among them. The original producer of the first play was begged by many people to quit wasting her time on this play, that it could not possibly succeed because it was a show full of hatefullness and ugliness. Guess she showed them. Of course the show centers around the doomed love of Maria and Tony, pictured in my header. And the words at the top are from the duet where they declare their love for each other. Unfortunately, death did part them, due to people's intolerance for other's differences. But death will never part us from our Lord, and in our new life, differences will not matter anymore, because we will all be transformed. Too bad we will have to wait till then to see such unity.
"But there's far more to life for us. We're citizens of high heaven! We're waiting the arrival of the Savior, the Master, Jesus Christ, who will transform our earthly bodies into glorious bodies like his own. He'll make us beautiful and whole with the same powerful skill by which he is putting everything as it should be, under and around him." Philippians 3:20,21
