Royal Wedding Thoughts

Royal wedding. *sigh* I enjoyed everything from the pomp to the music to the sermon and the crazy people in the streets. Oh, there's a heavenly royal wedding to come that will be infinitely better, and of course, winning the war was "quite good" as one wedding watcher said, but this is right up there. Maybe we need a little royal wedding every so often to break up the tragedy and warfare. Eh?

Remember, that one guy said every wedding is like a royal wedding in a sense! ♥

Wedding Prayer (Written by Prince William and Catherine Middleton)
"God our Father, we thank you for our families; for the love that we share and for the joy of our marriage.
In the busyness of each day keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy.
Strengthened by our union help us to serve and comfort those who suffer."

I found myself feeling guilty at times while I watched it knowing all of the sadness and hardships in the world, but I had to remind myself of the Chinese proverb "One joy shatters a hundred grief.s" I have to believe that by living in joy we are simultaneoously adding to the joy in the world and through that helping heal the sorrows ♥

I felt very "girlie" all day at work today. It was just so joyous to watch and gave me a lift all day. : )

"I was trying to stay away from all this wedding stuff, but got dragged in after seeing Kate's dress. I was happy to see that it was very modest. Girls today don't have anyone respectful to look up to. It seems like all the "stars" are competing for who can wear less clothing. The fact that she wore the dress that she wore, and the way she dresses on a regular basis, gives Kate major points in my book."

This is one of those fantasies pointing towards the Real that Tolkien wrote about, I think.
