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.

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

Published

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

on

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…
