I have to admit it...I've been denying it long enough. I'm so excited about the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William! My excitement is a little bit late seeing how the wedding took place this morning while I was snoozing away, but I did wake up in time to watch the highlights. It was so beautiful, such a joyous day! A day to be remembered.
I guess nearly every girl is a teensy bit jealous of Kate Middleton. Not that I envy her all the protocol and duty her life will be full of from now on, nor even Prince William himself, but just the idea of marrying a real prince and becoming royalty is enough to make any girl's heart skip a beat.
The thought came to me this morning as I was sitting outside on the swing, drinking my V-8 fruit juice; I have my own prince. It flooded me with joy! The thought, of course, was not new to me; I've read tons of books that tell me I am a princess in the truest sense of the word because of my faith in Jesus Christ (One of which, of course, is the Bible). In fact, I'm a double princess; I am a daughter of the King of kings and I am engaged to the Prince of Peace, Jesus. (If that sounds a little weird to you check out Ephesians 5:22-33)
Usually it's pretty hard to convince myself of the truth of that, especially when I'm living out a normal, nothing-royal-about-it life. Today it's different; I've been reminded that sometimes fairy-tales are real, sometimes things that seem too good to be true are truer than anything else.
So today I am basking in the joy of the knowledge that I, me, Jenna, the girl who is afraid of people jumping at her in the dark, loves extra, extra sharp cheddar cheese and quoting movies, I am tenderly loved by the Prince, by God Himself, by the greatest Man who ever lived and He is waiting eagerly for the day He can bring me home.
Now that will be a day to remember!
