I’ve always been a bit of a romantic. I loved romance stories from the time I was born I think. From Cinderella, my favorite as a child, to Pride and Prejudice, my absolute favorite now.
I love happy endings so Romeo and Juliet was never on my list of top 10 favorites. I have, however, learned to appreciate all the classics more as I’ve grown older.
I loved them all; the dashingly handsome prince, sweeping the princess off her feet and carrying her off to happily ever after.
The beautifully resplendent knight on a white horse galloping in to save the day – and the girl.
The rich titled man who falls in love with the maid or the store clerk and dares to break convention to marry beneath his station.
Long-lost lovers reunited after a separation brought on by misunderstanding.
High school sweethearts who marry young and love each other deeply and unconditionally for more than 60 years.
The man and woman who have been together for 80 years, hands clasped, pass on to eternity within minutes of each other.
Every human being that ever walks this earth is born with a desire to love and be loved. Babies who are loved thrive and grow and return that love before they can even talk. True love can soften the hardest heart and change the most resolute person.
God gave me family and friends to love and to love me in return. I met and married my handsome prince. He loves me, cares for me, laughs with me, talks to me, provides for me, and I am so thankful. I have been truly blessed.
God has blessed me in this mortal life – and has far surpassed any human expectations I may have in the immortal life to come. He has prepared me a home in heaven for when my life here is over. And he is coming back for me – ON A WHITE HORSE!
For every romantic heart out there – the King of Kings will come for you too – on a white horse – if you know Him and love Him.
Do you know the King of Kings? Has He been asked to live in your heart? Do you live your life for Him so when He arrives on that white horse He finds you waiting?
‘Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for He judges fairly and wages a righteous war. His eyes were like flames of fire, and on His head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except Himself. He wore a robe dipped in blood, and His title was the Word of God. The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed Him on white horses. ‘ -Revelation 19:11-14
I pray you have a very Blessed Sunday.
