Did you watch the Royal Wedding?

Most little girls grow up reading and dreaming of being a princess and I was no different.  I actually love all the tradition and fanfare, the unbelievable hats, the formality that the Brits have that the Americans have lost.  I love the romance and the happily ever after endings.  Wasn’t Catherine just stunning?  Prince William looked nervous and I love how Catherine held so tightly to her daddy’s  hand that their knuckles almost looked white.  Can you even imagine riding off in the Cinderella carriage?  I loved Princess Di’s wedding and I loved the romance of the late President and Mrs. Reagan.  Jackie Kennedy mesmerized me when I was late elementary and jr. high age.  All this said, even with the fun of dreaming of a life of luxury, of carriages and princesses and happliy ever afters, I do live in reality and my reality is I do not have an earthly prince, I drive a car instead of riding in a carriage, I have disappointments and tears, but I do have God.  I have an eternal Prince of Peace, I am promised streets of gold and mansions and no more tears and life everlasting.  How comforting is that?  Catherine’s earthly fairytale will one day end, my eternal fairytale will one day begin.  I have the following quote by Beth Moore on my fridge for frequent reading.  It is one of my favorites:

Living happily ever after wasn’t original with Cinderella.

It began with God.

What’s more, there’s no such thing as fairies,

But angels are a different story.

No yellow brick road,

but streets of gold.

No cottages in the forest

-just mansions in glory.

 No crowns on our heads

-just crowns at his feet.

-Beth Moore

“Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.”

II Corinthians 2:9
