Okay, once upon a time there was a little princess with long blond hair and big blue eyes. She wore a pretty pink dress with ribbons flowing down from her hair. She was walking through a beautiful forest on a warm sunny day... Suddenly she came to a wide open field. The field had long green grass, purple flowers, and white ones.
And pink? Alea questions.
Oh, yes, and pink flowers. The sun was shining down on the girl’s face and the birds were singing. She couldn’t help herself, but a song came into her heart. She ran out into the field and danced. She twirled and danced and sang with the birds in the air as the sun was warm on her skin and the leaves moved with the wind... And as she danced, God was there, smiling on her, loving on her, and dancing with her. It was him who put the song in her heart! He's like a big strong Daddy who is always there....
Was it my Prince?
Even a two-almost-three year old can sense the longing in her heart to be loved.
We are still loved and covered under a good and gracious God. He is a father to the fatherless and a defender of widows (Ps 68:5) He is our heroic Bridegroom and perfect Peace.
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Ps 4:8)
