forever His Princess
The rich, proper, dignified-looking people walking into the church. Harry turning around and laughing, whispering something to Will. Kate's sister, Pippa, walking in, holding hands with the flower girls. The choir with those funny collar's and amazing voices. How do they get so loud?
The moment everyone was waiting for -- Kate's dress. Who designed it? This person who died last year. A very famous designer, I take it. Alexander or someone. Forgive me, it's not my profession. :)
The fact that when she was a little girl, maybe Kate dreamed of marrying her Prince and becoming a Princess and living in a castle. Believing it in her heart but moving on in her mind.
You know what? When my time on earth is up, I'm going to live forever in God's Kingdom -- as His Princess.
I think it's something my mind can't really comprehend; but my heart does. Knows it. Understands it. Believes it.
"Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers -- not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away." -- 1 Peter 5:2-4, NIV
I just read this chapter in The Message version of the Bible. 1 Peter 5.
