The Princess Mentality

The Christmas before we were married, Andy gave me this pillowcase that he had gotten custom embroidered with Princess Mary Ann on it.

I thought it was cute, although a very unique gift. "Oh, how sweet. I'm his princess."

I hadn't used it in quite a while when I got it out to use it a few months ago. Immediately, I had a different perspective.

Instead of just being royalty in my husband's eyes, this pillowcase is a reminder that I am a daughter of the King.

That makes me a true Princess!

I John 3:1:
How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

Song of Solomon 4:7:
All beautiful you are, my darling; there is no flaw in you.

He sees us as beautiful. We are His daughters. Let's hold our heads up a little higher, walk straighter with a bit more confidence.  We are real Princesses!

This is beautiful and I needed to hear it. For some reason this is a hard concept for me to truly grasp, but I love the scriptures you shared! Thanks!! :)

Beautiful post! I need to be reminded so often. I keep my favorite bookmark in my Bible and it says: "I know that I'm a Princess. My Father is the King of Kings."

I've given you an award at my blog if you want to stop by and pick it up!
