Beginnings and Endings

Ok, so I've been meaning to blog about the Royal Wedding.  I just haven't taken the time to do it.  Now Osama bin Laden is dead.  Decisions decisions!  So, I thought I can just do both.

The week ended with the marriage of Prince William to his beautiful bride, Kate Middleton.  Yes, I was up at 3 a.m. watching.  How did I differ from everyone else who watched?  My wonderful husband stayed up the entire night watching while I slept on the sofa.  He woke me up for everything he knew I wanted to see.  THAT, my friends, is love!

The wedding was beautiful.  Kate's dress was divine.  I loved it!  IMHO it was much prettier than Princess Diana's.  Dutchess Catherine's dress was timeless. 

Wanna know my favorite part????  That they drove off together, him driving her, the car decorated, just like everyone else in the world.  So sweet.  So normal.

I pray that they grow old together.

So we ended the week with a new marriage.  A new beginning.

Today is the start of our week.  We get to begin our week with the ending of a life.  Osama bin Laden is dead!  It seems weird to be glad of someone's death.  Yes, I am glad he is dead.  I'm glad the US military is responsible for his death.  I am proud to be an American!

I also have to mourn.  Mourn a soul gone to hell.  I know I don't know for sure that he didn't, at the end of his life ask Jesus into his heart, but I think it's something we can be relatively sure of.  It really does make me sad for anyone to go to hell.  I want everyone to know the joy of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ.  Jesus died for us all.  Even Osama bin Laden.  How sad it must make our Savior when someone, even someone as evil as bin Laden, dies and goes to hell.

So, I leave you with this tonight...if you don't know Jesus, meet him.  Accept him.  Admit your sins and ask him into your heart.  Don't let it wait.

If you know Jesus, tell people what He's done for you.

  1. I typed a big long response re: Bin Laden and then Blogger trashed my comment. I hate that. I hate Blogger.

    Basically, I said that it feels weird to be celebrating a death. We should not be rejoicing in revenge. It should be a quiet reverence for justice served. I said it better the first time though :)
