“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.

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble

Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
