Little Girl With Autism Mistakes Bride for Cinderella. How the Bride Reacts Is Priceless.

“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.

LGBTQ Activists Blitz Drew Brees Over Support Of ‘Bring Your Bible To School’ Program. His Response Is Perfect.

Classy response.

Published

on

LGBTQ activists, or more affectionately, the “alphabet people,” are once again up in a tizzy over a Christian doing what Christians do, supporting things Christians should support. This time the target of their rainbow tinted rage is New Orleans Saints superstar quarterback Drew Brees. Brees is a big supporter of a program that encourages kids to bring their Bibles to school. Brees has openly been a Christian for a long time, so his support of such a program is not at all a shock, but the perpetually offended folks in the homosexual community are nonetheless attacking him over it. Well, Brees has responded and it’s awesome. Here’s a video of Brees talking about his support of the program in question: https://youtu.be/qPFEyeug99g via TheBlaze: Deadspin ran the headline “Drew Brees appears in video for gay conversion therapy sickos, doesn’t understand what the big deal is,” for the story. Others on Twitter accused Brees of being a “bigot” and aligned with a “hateful group.” Brees responded to the online furor through a video on his Instagram trying to clear the air and saying that he was falsely smeared by a deceptive article on the story. https://twitter.com/Amie_Just/status/1169705243216666626 “What I did was I filmed a video recently that was encouraging kids to bring their Bibles to school for national Bring your Bible to School Day,” said Brees. “So I’m not sure why the negativity spread, or why people tried to rope me into certain negativity,” he added. “I do not support any groups that discriminate, or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality. OK? So hopefully that has set the record straight, and we can all move on, because that is not what I stand for.” Unfortunately, you can almost guarantee that such a statement is not at all going…

Pete Buttigieg Adds New Sin To God’s List; It’s A Real Eye Roller

This guy clearly never read the last few verses in the Bible.

Published

Okay, so you know how the Bible, in the book of Revelation warns folks about adding to or taking away from the Bible, the Holy Written Word of God? Apparently, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has never read that portion of Scripture. During a town hall about climate change hosted on CNN, Buttigieg mentioned that skeptics of the science on this issue were committing a grave sin. Yes, that’s right, folks. Apparently the Eleventh Commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Deny Climate Change.” Guess we missed that one on our first read through. via TheBlaze: “Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith,” said Buttigieg, an openly gay presidential candidate. “You know, if you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it ⁠— countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas ⁠— what do you suppose God thinks of that?” he asked rhetorically. “I bet He thinks it’s messed up,” Buttigieg answered. “And you don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this, because frankly, every religious and non-religious moral tradition tell us that we have some responsibility of stewardship, some responsibility for taking care of what’s around us,” he continued. https://youtu.be/gq7rwFPC3vU Buttigieg also brought up how not caring about climate change is also an issue of not loving your neighbor. “Not to mention taking care of our neighbor. Eventually it gets to the point where this is less and less about the planet as an abstract thing, and more and more about specific people suffering specific harm because of what we’re doing right now,” Buttigieg said. You know what else God hates, Mr. Buttigieg? People who twist up the meaning of His Word and add their own manmade…
