A Word from the Queen

Published 12:00 am Saturday, August 2, 2014

Dressed all fancy and standing tall among her peers, the white lace seemed a little much for one of such questionable background. Apparently someone thought highly of her and gave her a rather royal name. It changed the way she thought of herself and others. There was a time when shame was her clothing, uncertainty her mindset.
But no more.
Now she thrives in the lowliest places, especially amongst the common. Living just to brighten the world around her, she asks for nothing in return. Lifting her face toward heaven she stands confident that the One Who made her would also provide.
And He does.
“So don’t worry about these things saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously and He will give you everything you need.
So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” — Matthew 6:31-34
Queen Ann’s Lace: What a commoner!
Yet there she stands like royalty, beautifully dressed by her Creator. She wisely whispers to all who will hear.
“If God so sweetly cares for me, won’t He surely take care of those made in His image?”
