From My Mother's Pen...

She huffs, she puffs, and blows her house down!

Who is this young lady that would do such a thing? Surely not one of the King's daughters! Young ladies, I exhort you to examine yourselves and see if this could be said of you. Please read carefully Proverbs 6:16-19. I can see Miss Huff & Puff in these verses. She's proud -- always looking in the mirror. She lies to Dad and Mom. She fights with her siblings. She feeds her mind on the wicked things of the world. She's always in a hurry to get to some mischievous event. --Truly this is no King's daughter!
She huffs and she puffs and she blows her own house down. Isn't this a sad picture? Only prayer and conviction from God could meet the need of this young lady. I can see some of this kind of person creep into anyone's life, even a King's daughter. We must guard against it. Proverbs 8:13 "The fear of the Lord is to hate evil, pride and arrogancy, and the forward mouth, do I hate." I often ask the Lord to help me fear Him.
Another verse for us is in Philippians 2:14, "Do all things without murmurings and disputings." You know, things like making your bed, vacuuming, washing dishes, folding laundry, ext. ext. Let's pray for each other while we work. Let's sing and make melody in our hearts to the Lord. Why? Philippians 2:15, "That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as the lights of the world."
Young lady, go to the mirror and take a good look. Remember, there are some things a Princess doesn't do. You are the King's daughter. Pray, do right, and shine for Jesus!

With Love,
Mom - Mrs. Tammy Williams
