A Brand New Pinafore

I remember when I was small, most of the time I used to wear dresses.... I did wear jeans and sorts when I played, but it wasn't the norm like today. I really didn't like dresses, I'd much rather be in the old jeans.... I was such a tomboy and being barefoot and grimy was much more my style. But there was one dress, well, not really a dress at all, that I loved to wear it was so special, it made me feel like the princess at the ball.

It was call a pinafore and was like a fancy apron worn over your dress and tied in back.... it had ruffles on the sides made from eyelet lace that spread over my shoulders almost like wings. But that's not what made it so special, it was both because the occasions I wore it were so rare, but mostly because my Mother had one just like it, and when she wore hers, we looked just alike - and the joy I felt was beyond measure, for I thought she was beautiful and everything good, and it was so wonderful to look just like her!

I think of that pinafore, and how it made me feel, and I realize that same joy is mine today, because when Jesus came into my life, He made me new, and put all the sin and shame away. He brought out a brand new pinafore for me to wear, so white and shining bright, and this was the look I would carry each day, declaring that I now belonged to Him. What a joy that was, to learn that I was His child, that I was protected and surrounded by God's love, and as long as I stayed there, following in His steps, I would not go wrong, I was safe from everything that might threaten me.

Then when I was strong enough, I'd learned that love could be mine.... and then God brought you into my life.... and all of the sudden I felt so special again, you made me feel like a princess, and made me your wife. Oh the joy that I felt, and still feel each dawning day, the hours stretch out like a shining path, and wherever it leads matters not at all, for when my hand is in yours, and I follow your lead, each step is full of adventure, discovery and delight.

God gave me back my life, out of darkness and despair, and then He wanted to give me more, so He brought me to you, a gift of unspeakable joy, a husband I could love and adore.

Mom tells me that my legs were so short when I was little that she had to either buy my dresses too small or put new hems in them. Most every dress I owned though, she made it for me herself... and cut them much shorter than the pattern called for. She said anything that didn't show the ruffles on my bloomers made me look slouchy with those short, stubby legs. I tell her that she gave me a complex, but in all honesty, those dresses she made just for me meant more to me than she could ever have imagined. And I'm sure that, when the Lord wills, I will feel the same way about that spouse that the Lord made extra special... just for Shorty... me.

Trish, I love the pictures you paint each day! Your beautiful picture today made me look at my relationship with God in a new light. I am His daughter and He truly makes me feel like a princess. I am also thankful He gave me a real prince, who also makes me feel like a princess. Thanks for your lovely insights into His love. Much love, Rita
