You are Royalty

The Royal Wedding!  Some people could care less while others are obsessed.  I am excited about this wedding for several reasons.

#1 - The girlie side of me can't wait to watch a beautiful girl marry her prince.  I pretended to be Princess Diana for years after watching her wedding.  I still want a ring just like that sapphire one!  (Matt, are you reading this?)

#2 - I look forward to making a memory with my daughters, who are so excited to see the beautiful bride marry her prince in all their splendor.  We will be up in the morning with our tea & treats, ready to watch!

#3 - Since my children were born, I have reminded them that they are princesses. God's princesses, to be exact.  God is our King and ruler, and we are his children.  (Romans 8:16-17)  The girls always giggle when I remind them they are princesses.  But it is true...

Every one of us are held in such 
high esteem in God's eyes.  

I love that this earthly royal event gives my girls a visual for the importance that God places on each of our lives.  We are that beautiful bride & groom riding in a carriage, the whole world stopping to make way for us, being led down the street with the highest regard.

It is a LIE to say that we are worth 
anything less than that.

Yet before we get full of ourselves, we must remember how we became royalty.  Our Father, our King, created us to honor him with our lives -- the duty of a true prince or princess.  Being royalty requires humility, sacrifice and hard work.  Work that will take a lifetime for me to accomplish.

Enjoy the wedding!

Boy, I was one of the people who couldn't care less; now you've got me thinking I'd better watch it with my girls!!! :) (Who, by the way, have grown up on the "Princess" Bible compiled by Sheila Walsh!)
