yes, I AM a princess, why do you ask?(becoming God's princess part 1)

http://www.princessdivas.com/images/princess-school2.jpg
Remember when I had those survey thingys? This is what they were in preparation for.
When I say "princess", what do you think of? Knowing my blog audience, I would say most of you think of Princess Leia. Others will think of floaty dresses, others sparkly tiaras or jewelry. 
The world has long had a fascination with royalty and princesses. We write stories. We make movies. We get up at 1 in the morning to watch them get married on television.

But did you know you are a princess?
If you are a Christian girl, whether you like it or not, then you are a princess. You are a princess with far more possibility and potential and importance than most of the princesses in stories and in real life. Because your father, your king, rules over the whole world and earth. He made everything from the smallest cell to the biggest planet in the solar system. You would think he would be very busy and important, far too busy to notice people like you or me where the only thing we make is messes.

But he knows your name! Out of everybody on the planet, and all the planets in the galaxy, and all the galaxies in the universe, he knows you, one messed up, imperfect speck on a whole planet of other messed up, imperfect specks. He knows what you want and what makes you cry. He knows more about you than you know about yourself.

And he loves you.

A lot of people, a lot of princesses, don't care or take very much notice of that powerful sentence. They plod along in life, thinking "Yeah, Jesus loves me this I know, blah blah blah. I'm a princess, whatever, uh-huh."

That's not what's supposed to happen. Being a princess should rock your world. And that's what these posts are designed to help you do.
So what does being God's princess mean? Think about princesses in general.

From their birth, all princesses know they're not like everybody else. They live in a huge castle while the rest of the common people live in their little houses. Everyone knows their name.

But the biggest difference is their purpose.

While the other people in the kingdom grow up to be shoemakers or whatever, princesses are taught from the beginning that they are set aside.
They have a special purpose in life! They have a  lot of responsibility, and they spend their lives preparing for it. Taking lessons, observing officials, helping with business sometimes, these all help princesses prepare for the day when they will rule the kingdom(Or not, it depends. It's still important.)
We're all kind of like that. From the day we are born again into The King's family, we're set aside for a special purpose and a special time. We live to prepare ourselves(and others) for the day when The King will come back and rule the kingdom again. 

A lot of us have forgotten that. We've forgotten that we're any different from the people around us. Instead of remembering that we've been set apart from this world and it's values, we've been caught and dragged down right with them. Instead of keeping our eyes on the coming kingdom and listening to our father, we've been distracted by the temptations the world offers, the ones that seem so much better than whatever He has to offer us. For now.

Here are the posts in the series. Their titles might change, and they will be spread apart between other posts.

Post #2-The problem with "Me".(The biggest problem in the world)
Post #3-A Princess's Heart(romance, etc.)
Post #4-A Princess's Mind(media)
Post #5-A Princess's Body(modesty)
Post #6-Why Feminism is Skeevy(title soon to be changed)
Post #7-Staying God's Princess till the King returns.

This series is dedicated to Padme/Endor/Moelle. (She knows who she is). When I think of the ultimate God's princess, I think of her. I've been greatly inspired by her efforts to stay princessly in a world that isn't. I'm sad she's closing down her blog. 

Google "becoming God's princess", click on "Images", and the very first picture is a picture of her. I'm dead serious. Try it.

Hope you enjoy the posts.

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

Howl's Moving Castle book analysis

“I feel ill. I'm going to bed, where I may die.”
― Howl, upon having a cold. I've decided to call them "book analysis" because they're not really reviews that tell you how much I liked the book, rather,  me taking the book apart and looking at different aspects of it for my own entertainment. Read on. Also, read Howl's Moving Castle.







This is the original cover of Howl's Moving Castle and I have got to say it is the UGLIEST thing I have ever seen. I like the new one much better.

Ahem.


First of all, I should point out that Howl's Moving Castle is a children's book. However, I like to hold all books I read to the same standard, after all, they're written by adults.

I had biased expectations of Howl's Moving Castle from the start, because I kept hearing from several sources how amazing, how fantastic, how hilarious and how romantic the book was, and hearing the perfectly gorgeous soundtrack by Joe Hizazi(something or other.)

Howl's Movi…
