put on a princess dress and dance

Princess Astair at her birthday party (more pics to come!)


Sometimes you just have to put on a princess dress, blow some bubbles, and dance.

Even if you think you've forgotten how to dance.
Even if your heart hurts or you're weary from days and nights of battling on your knees in prayer.
Especially then.
You can dance, you can forget, you can chase bubbles across the lawn as if you didn't have a care in the world...
Because you can trust your Daddy God cares for you.
And He's looking after the details just so you can dance for Him.


Trusting.  Persevering.  Loving.  Forgiving.  Leaning.  Yearning.  Dancing.  Clinging.  Letting go.  Embracing  Jesus.

These are what I'm learning.

Ah :)
This is somewhat like the way i relate to God. I have always imagined myself as a little girl in a field under a big oak tree with a swing... dancing in a pretty dress for God. So wonderful. The inner child will always live on!
