Once transformed, a butterfly can’t ever go back to being a caterpillar.” I do believe that we need to add her question’s to our list from yesterday.

I’ve had a thing for transformations since middle school, when I first saw Princess Diaries, where Anne Hathaway, a nerdy high school student with frizzy hair and glasses suddenly finds out she’s a princess. Her grandmother, the Queen, flies in with her posse of experts and gives Anne a makeover – new hair, a touch of makeup, new wardrobe and princess lessons.  By the second movie, Anne’s character is completely transformed from the girl she started out as.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
