We are Princesses

Here's another layout from "Daughter's of the King" day. It's fun to dress up! I love this dress...I found it 4 years ago at Goodwill! for my sister-in-law's wedding, and I was 3 months pregnant with Hannah. I had just lost a bunch of weight, and I felt beautiful! I tried to wear it 1 month after Makenna was born, but it just didn't this was the 2nd time I could wear it! There truly aren't that many opportunities to wear a gown. I found some cute {very} high heels to wear on clearance at Wal-mart. They are silver and strappy and sparkly. By the end of the event, I was quite ready to take them off! I'm not very graceful, so I didn't know how to walk very smoothly, plus, Makenna wanted to run all over during the program-sit down part- and so I was on my feet most of the time. The girls wore their Easter dresses, and Hannah got to create her very own Tiarra out of foam and stickers. She was a little shy about the whole thing because it was mostly all people she didn't know, and she was afraid that I was going to leave her in the classroom. Lately, she's been really afraid of that, even in place she's been before. She makes a fuss about it when I leave her at the YMCA daycare--a place she's been a few times a week since January, at MOPS--where she's been 2x a month since she was born, and at church, where she's been all her life. I don't understand, except that all the changes in our home life and all the moving around has thrown her off kilter. Plus, nap time has been jepardized a lot lately. So I keep loving on her and spending as much quality time with her as I can--of course, I'm with her all day long every day, so this means actally interacting with her one on one--doing crafts, reading, stuff like that.
We may be sure that He who permits the suffering is with us in it...Directly we begin to speak to Jesus, as being literally present, though His presence is veiled, there comes an answering voice which shows that He is in the shadow, keeping watch upon His own. Your Father is as near when you journey through the dark tunnel as when under the open heaven!
Here's a clip from today's devotional. There are many times lately that I question the presence of God. Again, it's my heart, my emotions, that wonder if God is truly here, if He cares, if He's truly personal and loving. My head, my will, reminds me of the truth of God's Word...He's an ever present help in time of need...I will never leave you nor forsake you...I will provide for all your needs, according to My riches in glory...I am reminded today that my will must rule over my emotions. What I experience, what my emotions tell me will change. What God's Word says is unchanging and is completely reliable. I must respond to Jesus, continue in prayer, to be steadfast, immovable, abounding in faith, even when I don't feel like it. Even when it seems hopeless. That's what God calls his child to do.
