Nightly Devotionals and Fairy Dust

Some of the best heart to heart conversations that my daughter and I have had recently have been during our nightly devotionals. We use the book For Girls Only! Devotions which is age appropriate for a 4th grader and scripture based with examples on how to apply the lesson in our lives. 

Last night’s scripture was, “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” -Proverbs 16:24

After B read aloud the verse, simultaneously, we said, “I like that!” At a time when little girls can be mean to one another, God’s words ring true.

She is at such a tender age, with One Direction (band) posters taped to her walls, and a fairy hotel created from an old shoebox seated on her nightstand. The child has the tiny fairy door rigged with a small, silver jingle bell in hopes of hearing the fairy wings flying into her ‘Fairy Hotel’ at night.  Who wouldn’t want to stay on a ittie bed, with tiny handmade quilt and crowns made out of tin foil? Wasn’t she surprised when she found fairy had left some dust this morning!

Can you please stay 9 years old forever?
