A ROYAL CROWN


A year ago my daughter was crowned "Homecoming Queen" by her student body. We were all there to share in her big moment! It was an amazing moment in her life. One that no doubt she will remember ALWAYS.

Tonight was Homecoming and the reigning Queen was to return and crown the new Queen.

I remember vividly Jenna being crowned. My little girl ~ the sports fanatic, loyal friend, and beautiful daughter...inside and out. The bleachers were filled with people and so were the sidelines of the football field. Screams and applause erupted when they announced her name as the Homecoming Queen. A huge group of friends swarmed around her to congratulate her. It was a moment I will never forget. I will also never forget the humility in which Jenna received this crown. She never pretended to be anyone other than who God made her to be. She knew this was an honor by her peers, but more importantly, she knew where her Real crown will come from. The Eternal Crown. I have always shared with my kids..."You are a child of the KING!" Don't let anyone tell you differently! You are set apart Honey, by God!
Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity 1Tim 4: 12

Thank you Lord, for choosing us! Making us YOURS! For the gift of Salvation and Eternal Life! Thank you that even when we receive blessings here on Earth, or people are surrounding us and clapping for us, nothing compares to Your Love and Your Gift of Eternal Life!
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. 1Peter 2:9-10



Today I am linking up here with Charlotte!

What a marvelous post. Jenna is so fortunate to have parents who taught her to value her real crown from God more tan any earthly crown.

INSIDE THE SHRINK

Your daughter is blessed to have been taught and internalized the truth that our Lord crowns us with honor as His children. How awesome and humbling it is to know we will lay our crown at His feet. It all belongw to him anyway.God bless.
