Tulle Tutus and Tiaras!

Mom, how do you do a pose?

If you know me, you know I have my smile and my awkward face. That’s it! No duck lips, no serious face, no sexy face, no poppin’ a hip (in an effort to look less like an Ungraceful Dying Flamingo), but when a 5-year-old is decked out in dress up clothes, I suppose you have to strike a pose. Kid, put your hand on your hip! That’s the best I could do. (Chesnei, we may need help here as well).

So Hads and Beans were playing dress up and I was mindlessly doing 50 piece United States and continent puzzles. Apparently Hadassah wasn’t pleased with my choice of hobby! Here mom, let me help you be like me! 

I looked up at my sassy daughter in her pink belly shirt, tulle tutu, and tiara. Despite how cute she looked I couldn’t help but think…Nah I’m good! This mom of three kids needs to avoid belly shirts and tutus these days!

Let me help you be like me!

I couldn’t help but wonder if Jesus ever thinks that about me. Hey, Brooke let Me help you be like Me. You’re struggling a bit! 

There’s this song I love called Scandal of Grace by Hillsong United. It goes like this…

Grace, what have you done?
Murdered for me on that cross
Accused in absence of wrong
My sin washed away in your blood
Too much to make sense of it all
I know that your love breaks my fall
The scandal of grace, you died in my place
So my soul will live
Oh to be like you
Give all I have just to know you
Jesus, there’s no one besides you
Forever the hope in my heart
Death, where is your sting?
Your power is as dead as my sin
The cross has taught me to live
In mercy, my heart now to sing
The day and its trouble shall come
I know that your strength is enough
The scandal of grace, you died in my place
So my soul will live
Oh to be like you
Give all I have just to know you
Jesus, there’s no one besides you
Forever the hope in my heart
Oh to be like you
Give all I have just to know you
Jesus, there’s no one besides you
Forever the hope in my heart
And it’s all because of you, Jesus
It’s all because of you, Jesus
It’s all because of your love
And my soul will live
Oh to be like you
Give all I have just to know you
Jesus, there’s no one besides you
Forever the hope in my heart
Oh to be like you
Give all I have just to know you
Jesus, there’s no one besides you
Forever the hope in my heart

Oh, to be like Jesus! Give me a little extra patience, gentleness, self-control this week please! Let me stop saying, Nah, I’m good!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. (Galatians 5:22-26, ESV)

Good luck with this, friends!

Bye! 🙂
