Ties and Tiaras

Last month our church hosted a Ties and Tiaras event for fathers and daughters.  My son-in-law got down on one knee and asked his daughter (my granddaughter), who is 3 years old, to be his date.  She was so excited to be going on a date with her daddy.


The day arrived and her mother did her hair in curls, dressed her in her princess dress and put make-up on her.  She was so beautiful and she beamed.  Her daddy put on his dress pants, white shirt and his wedding tie.  Just before they left, he put a small strand of pearls around her neck as a gift.  What a handsome couple they made.  They had a wonderful time eating together and dancing the night away like Cinderella.


During the evening, each little girl received a charm of a princess tiara with a card attached to it.  It said:


“You are created in the image of God.  He has amazing plans for your life.  His love is unconditional.  I am here tonight to remind you that you are a princess in His eyes.  Others will let you down but God will never let you down.  Please accept this charm as a reminder of His unconditional love for you.” 


 Psalm 139:13-14 – For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…


 I love this scripture.  We are created in God’s image and God didn’t make a mistake when He made us.  He loves us unconditionally and that will not change.  We are all princesses in His eyes.  Daughters of God Most High!


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


 Romans 8:17 – Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ…


My prayer is that each woman that reads this post will stop to remember who we are in Christ.  God didn’t make a mistake when He made you.  You are beautiful, wonderful and worthy of the love that He has for you.  You are a princess, too!


It’s time to get out your tiara, dust and polish it, then place it on your head proudly.  You are a daughter of the King.
