It was such a perfect day for a tea party! The Daughters of the King spent a lovely afternoon at tea hosted by our dearest Deebe. The setting was elegant and the food dainty! We read the story of the lost princess from the book “Becoming the Woman God made you to be” by Tammy Evvard. How we all forget that we belong to the King. We believe the lies about our true identity and settle for what the world around us imposes on us. Yet the King never stops looking for us. He never tires nor does He grow weary in His search for us. O what joy it is to know we belong to Him! We fortified ourselves with these biblical verses:
1 peter 3: 3-4
Your adornment should not be an external one: braiding the hair, wearing gold jewelry, or dressing in fine clothes,but rather the hidden character of the heart, expressed in the imperishable beauty of a gentle and calm disposition, which is precious in the sight of God.
Proverbs 31: 25-26, 30
She is clothed with strength and dignity, and laughs at the days to come. She opens her mouth in wisdom; kindly instruction is on her tongue. Charm is deceptive and beauty fleeting; the woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Positive and holy thoughts
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Wisdom 7: 22-29
for Wisdom, the artisan of all, taught me. For in her is a spirit intelligent, holy, unique, Manifold, subtle, agile, clear, unstained, certain, Never harmful, loving the good, keen, unhampered, beneficent, kindly, Firm, secure, tranquil, all-powerful, all-seeing, And pervading all spirits, though they be intelligent, pure and very subtle. For Wisdom is mobile beyond all motion, and she penetrates and pervades all things by reason of her purity. For she is a breath of the might of God and a pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty; therefore nothing defiled can enter into her. For she is the reflection of eternal light, the spotless mirror of the power of God, the image of his goodness. Although she is one, she can do all things,
and she renews everything while herself perduring; Passing into holy souls from age to age, she produces friends of God and prophets. For God loves nothing so much as the one who dwells with Wisdom. For she is fairer than the sun and surpasses every constellation of the stars. Compared to light, she is found more radiant;
