A Royal Wedding

I'm not sure if it is the horse drawn carriage, the beautiful dress, prince charming, the crown, the bells, or the thought of happily ever after...but there is something about the wedding of a royal Prince and Princess that speaks to the heart of every woman (c'mon ladies...admit it!).

I have to say that I loved the sermon given by the Bishop of London...especially this part...

“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” So said St Catherine of Siena whose festival day it is today. Marriage is intended to be a way in which man and woman help each other to become what God meant each one to be, their deepest and truest selves. ~ Royal Wedding sermon of the Bishop of London

A final thought: I think that if my little princess was several years older, we just may have woken up in the wee hours to watch the entire ceremony...while eating scones and drinking English tea...out of REAL porcelain tea cups...and wearing big beautiful hats...or perhaps even tiaras.


  1. Detta, I totally agree that the sermon was absolutely wonderful. As I listened to it I wondered if they absorbed it at all. I remember my own wedding was such a blur for me that I wished later on that I hadn't been so nervous or caught up in the technicalities. As a woman married 21 years, I found myself wishing I could turn back the clock and have such a sermon at my own wedding.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Someday, (soon!) you and your princess will be sharing the tea party you dreamed of...blink of an eye...! The Catherine of Sienna quote gave me chills - so beautiful!
