Sunday Snapshot {disheveled princess}

BLOG%20800%20crooked%20crown%20and%20flowers%20by%20the%20gate

Our little princess was looking quite disheveled after one really good meltdown.  

BLOG bottom lip up by fence

We took her back to Brookgreen Gardens (see my previous post) and on the way there she even said "Lily no sad". 

She was happy as could be until I took her out of her wagon...guess she forgot about the "no sad" deal she made with me :).  She LOVES the wagon that we take her in to the beach and it was not in her plan for me to take her out of it...guess I forgot to inform her of my plan :)

Tears erupted and I'm sure the people enjoying to the evening concert in the gardens were not amused with our little princess!

BLOG sad face with crown

Once the tears subsided I was getting ready to "fix her up" before taking any pictures but decided to capture a few expressions of our disheveled little girl.  

I'm so glad I did.  

BLOG profile by the fence

There is something about these pictures that draw me in and melt my heart.  

These are honest, real, emotions...captured in the moment.  

BLOG close up smelling flowers

This is a lot like me at times...

I try to "fix myself up" and look the part when God sees my disheveled, broken heart.  

He doesn't want me to come to Him trying to look perfect.

All He asks is that I come...

broken and willing to be changed....

submitting "my plan" to HIS desires for my life.

II Timothy 4:8 says...

"there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day..."  

BLOG looking down at flowers

a crown of righteousness for me...
a sinner, broken and in need of a Savior.  

BLOG looking through the gate

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trail, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him."  James 1:12

Is it possible to make use of frameworks like ExtJS from RubyJS? If so, how would you do it cleanly?
