I began working with my little student recently.  She is SO PRECIOUS--but I also may have my hands full---That is alright--I have had them full before!  Little Miss is very tiny--and really pretty---and she knows it!  She informed me that she had two siblings--both considerably older than she--as in almost grown.  She followed that by telling me that she really loved princesses and that she WAS in fact a princess.  I told her that was great--but to NOT FORGET that 


We needed to get it straight from the get-go WHO is in charge!  She then asked me, "What did you bring me?"  I laughed and told her I brought her "The Queen" and the queen would be there EVERY week to spend time with her "The Princess".  She THEN told me specifically just what she wanted me to bring her.  Bold AND beautiful-sounds like a soap-I told her to take that up with Santa---because I was not Santa nor the Good Fairy---BUT I was her friend and there to work with just her.

We all seem to have a sense of entitlement when it comes to life.  We KNOW what we expect life to look like and are not really too happy when it does not resemble what WE have in mind.  We after all have THE PERFECT Plan and know exactly how things should go and how life should look.

When we pray--we ask God for specifics---we want a bear---and not just a bear--but a pink Bear, God.  That is what you are there for---right God?  To answer my every want, need and desire---and in the manner I deem and in my perfect timing.  Child-like prayers become our petitions. 

SO GLAD that He just laughs at my silliness and vain attempt at being in control!  Where would I be had if I had the reins---I do not even want to think about it.  SO--I may be the queen BUT HE is the KING---and I am filled with joy today knowing that He reigns supreme in my life---and supplies my needs--NOT my wants!

"But the Lord is the true God, He is the living God, and an everlasting king"
Jeremiah 10:10

  1. Don't you love how God keeps growing us, stretching us, changing us? Our posts reflect that beauty.



Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
