First thing is first. My husband is totally cool with this photo….he created it while we were watching the wedding together on the couch. It was for a bit of a laugh on facebook :)
This wedding made a lot of girls think about life as a princess and what it would be like to one day be the Queen of a country. I had many conversations with friends leading up to the wedding about the pros and cons of being a princess, “I would hate it cause you have no privacy, poor girl”, “Imagine having her life and being in her shoes right now – how exciting!”.
Perhaps it has something to do with the age of the prince and princess (being close to your age it makes you think…wow, it could have been me!!!….kind of….I guess….if I looked like her…and lived in England….and did all the things she did…and went to school with Prince William….okay, fine – it could never be me…..).
I love that we all are princesses of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords….our own heavenly Father! If you have no idea WHAT I am talking about, you absolutely need to read: Captivating. This book unveils the truth behind God’s creation of woman and her purpose. It explains why, as little girls, we loved to dress up and pretend to be princesses at some stage – it has been ingrained in us by our Creator! It details why we still love to be treated like princesses by the princes in our lives. I love that my husband (after 12 years together) still carries things for me, does things for me like vacuuming and cleaning the bathrooms and fixes everything…even when he is exhausted, desires to spoil me and make me feel beautiful and special. And he calls me princess. I love that I married my very own prince…and God is my ultimate King.
