I finally finished Freckles second sundress last night!
Now I have to finish up our picnic blanket...
and a couple summery tops for my girl. I have been busy sewing away.
As you may have noticed Freckles is my little model in a lot of my pictures.
I must confess I think my girl is a cutie pie, and
I just can't help but take her picture.
To be honest there are times she doesn't like me pointing the camera in her face.LOL! Yet, she is always quite a good sport about it. We have had many mother, daughter conversations about vanity..... In which at her very young age, she understands. In person she is actually a quiet, shy girl...Usually latched on my side, peeking from my back. She is not one to make a spectacle of herself or the center of attention. She is also quite conscience of her modesty ( without prompting by me). She is not one to wear or pick out clothing that is (in fashion) by the worlds standards or inappropriate for girls her age. She is becoming the little maiden I have prayed for her to be. She makes this Momma proud!
I pray her innocence will not be lost to the world's vanity. As far as I can see...
Her character shows quite the opposite of this world.
She is one fun loving little girl, filled with a tender, sweet, childlike imagination.
And she has one of the funniest sense of humors to top.
I'm snapping these shots, telling her to pose and she gives me her goofy little self!
I wish you all knew her like I do!
In the Bible, Paul speaks to Christian women of the “ornament of a meek and quiet spirit.” And the girl who is growing into a perfect woman is noticed for her kindness, sympathy, gentleness, sweetness of spirit, and her willingness to be of service. There is about her a humility that makes you feel that she does not despise you and think you below her, that she is rather thinking of your happiness than her own personal appearance.
These beautiful graces—kindness, sympathy, humility, gentleness, purity—are the real ornaments of beautiful girlhood. But it is in the ornaments that clothe and beautify her soul and mind that make her a lovable and desirable creature who carries happiness and cheer wherever she goes. Seek first the more beautiful inner ornaments and then clothe the body so that those more important ornaments are not hidden.

Lord I pray...
Strengthen us to reject vanity and the worldly
motivations for beauty but rather beautify us
for the good of our loved ones and your glory.
Have a Blessed Sunday!
