“God is good! He definitely had a part in it.”

There are few little girls who wouldn’t love to see a princess in the flesh.

For some little girls, however, every day social situations can be overwhelming, like 5-year-old Layla Lester, so her mother Jessica, was stunned when Layla made a spontaneous new friend during a stroll in a local park.

A princess.

Well, it wasn’t a real princess, but Layla sure thought it was.

When she and Jessia, while walking through Akron Falls Park in New York recently ran into a bridal party taking photographs, Layla mistook the beautiful pride for Cinderella, and uncharacteristically ran over with open arms to meet her.

“She just goes running over, arms wide open, (yelling) ‘Cinderella, Cinderella!’” Jessica told WIVB 4.

“Cinderella” turned out to be bride Olivia Spark who, without missing a beat, joined right in on Layla’s fantasy.

“I was flattered. I was like in tears that she thought I was a princess, and it just made my day absolutely more amazing than what it already was,” Sparks said.

Jessica was so touched that Sparks was so kind to Layla.

“She is the epitome of what a real-life princess would be,” Jessica said. “She’s kind and she’s sweet and she went out of her way to be nice to Layla.”

Since they were already in the middle of taking pictures, Spark’s wedding photographer, Nicole Wickens, just went ahead and kept shooting.

“I was really caught off guard.” Wickins told WIVB 4. “Because there’s a little girl that none of us had known, so I wasn’t sure if I should take pictures. But it kind of just felt like the thing to do.”

On a Facebook post she shared about the experience, one user wondered what the odds were that this little girl would be there that day to see her princess, and that Wickins would be there to capture it.

“God is good!” she replied. “He definitely had a part in it.”

The pictures couldn’t be sweeter.

They quickly went viral, and, like a true 2018 fairy tale, there’s now a GoFund Me account to send Layla to Disney World to meet more princesses.

It is truly amazing what an impact a little bit of kindness can make.

Save conservative media!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
