My two-year old granddaughter made my day yesterday morning! We were getting ready for church; Kylie was already dressed in a little blue spring dress that made her feel like a princess. Whenever she wears a dress she declares, "I a princess!" Well, she saw me coming downstairs with my church dress on and with a most delighted look on her face, she asked, "Grandma, you a princess too?" That's the closest I've ever come to being called a princess by anyone. It was great!
It made me think of one of my favorite "girl" verses in Psalms ~ "The King's daughter is all glorious within. Her clothing is interwoven with gold." (Psalm 45:13) Maybe, when Kylie gets a little older, I'll be able to share that verse with her and help her understand that being a princess is what she is inside, in her character and in her relationship to the King, not what she wears on the outside.
