The King's Daughter should wear –
The King’s Beauty
The King’s daughter is all glorious within. Her clothing is interwoven with gold. She will be led to the King in embroidered work.
The King’s Strength and Dignity
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she smiles at the future. Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised.
Proverbs 31:25, 30, 31
Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.
The King’s Armor
Be strong in the Lord and in His strength. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil… Wrap your loins with truth, put on the breast-plate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel of peace, take up the shield of faith to extinguish the flaming arrows of the enemy, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Jesus said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may enter by the gates into the city.”
The King’s Character
Since you have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another just as the Lord forgave you. Most of all, put on love, the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts because you are all one body and be thankful.
Modesty and Kindness
Women, adorn yourself with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not depending on braided hair or jewelry and clothes for your beauty, but rather by means of doing kind things to bless others.
1 Timothy 2:9-10a
Your adornment must not be merely external, braiding the hair, wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in God’s sight.
1 Peter 3:3-4

Blessings and love in Him,
Welcome to Shale Fragments, a collection of writings and art for individual and group use!
Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.
As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
