Probably because of my experience yesterday, I'm thinking A LOT of my future daughters-in-law. Oh how I want to be the best mother-in-law on the planet, but thinking of my boys loving another woman more than their mommy is almost too much to bear. Then I read THIS blog today and I'm stealing her prayer...
And so I pray…
…for a Princess that realizes she is the daughter of the King of Heaven and Earth.
…for a Princess clothed in humility and grace, rather than the must-have fashions and trends.
…for a Princess with hands that will get dirty for the sake of serving others and with feet willing to walk the extra mile.
(Rather than one that demands manicures and pedicures by age seven.)
…for a Princess whose “adornment is not merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”
1 Peter 3:3-5
…for a Princess who loves unconditionally and forever, and doesn’t run out when her Prince falls off his Royal horse and isn’t as charming as she dreamed. (Because it will happen.)
