“Sunday Recital,” Friend, July 2004, 42
I take dance lessons, and every year we have a recital. I have been practicing for three months for this year’s recital. Some years the costumes are not very fancy, and some years they are. This year they are very fancy, and I have really been looking forward to dancing in mine. I just found out that the recital is on Sunday. My mom asked if I wanted to dance in it. I chose not to because it would not be keeping the Sabbath day holy.
