Most little girls dream of being a princess.  They hope that someone will rescue her from all her trouble and sadness – someone who will wrap his arms around her and protect, love and honor her.  As we grow older, we soon discover that real princes are hard to come by, but if we’re blessed, God matches us with just the right man to be our prince. Even then, our “prince” may not fulfill our dreams. It doesn’t take long to realize they aren’t perfect. They are not super-heroes. They aren’t always attentive or don’t always respond how we want them to. On the flip side, we aren’t always the princess they expected either.

Even those with royal titles don’t have it made.  Sure, they have all their physical tended to  They have servants, wealth and power, but they must follow all the rules without question and present themselves as perfect at all times. The one thing that guarantees a royal title is that woman’s father is a king. When we think about our dads, we don’t always think of them as perfect, but our heavenly Father is the One who made our royalty possible.  He paid the complete ransom for our perfection.  Jesus didn’t have to leave His royal throne behind and become a child born into poverty. His kingdom includes all the heavenly realms and everything in the entire universe, but He did so because of His great love for us.

Reality is not beautiful.  It’s not covered with gems and royal garb.  We often have to be crushed before we can see the glory of the true wealth we’ve possessed right from the beginning of our existence. My dream of being a princess didn’t always take the path I would’ve intended for it, but I know that I have a crown waiting for me in heaven – one purchased with the life, death and resurrection of my heavenly prince. Since His love ensures my royalty, I know that I am truly a princess.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  3. Amen! As parents, we are called to teach our sons and daughters as Christ would. His legacy comes crystal clear when we see Jesus in our grandchildren.
