Once Upon a Time…

Once u

pon a time there was a princess.

She lived in a cute little blue palace on Wisconsin Street with her prince charming, her princess baby girl, and her two royal doggies.

She was pretty cool sometimes…but other times, not so much.

Her days were always up and down.

Up and down.

And…up and down.

It felt like every time she’ d go

up? Then she’d go down.

‘Cause we all know that what goes up must come down, right?

She could never figure it out…it felt like a day could start out so wonderful and end up so completely horrible.

She tried to think happy thoughts…to say nice things, to do good for other people, but no matter what she did, it always seemed to blow up in her face. She’d say a hundred things right, and then one thing wrong…and BAM.

It was no longer a good day.

She fought with the King on this…’cause He made all the rules of the land, and she couldn’t understand why no matter what she did, it never turned out quite like she thought it should.

That’s when He said to her, very gently,

My child…I know you try to do all this good.

But you can’t do it with out Me.

If you do things in your own strength, they’ll never be done right.

She looked at Him, with tears welling up in her eyes.

Ok, King. I’ll follow what you say because I trust You. This is, after all, Your Kingdom, and I’m your princess.

Slowly, she began to walk away, but not before the King put his hand on her shoulder. As she turned back to look at Him, He spoke just three words to her.

You. Are. Mine.

And that was enough.

She took a deep breath, smiled, and vowed that tomorrow would be a better day.
