Now if we are children, then we are heirs - heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his suffering in order that we may also share in his glory.
Last Sunday, we celebrate Savannah Jane's first birthday, and what a festive time it is!
Although Savanna doesn't understand the concept of a birthday just yet, the joy of simply being with family and enjoying some good food is enough for her.
Of course, Virginia Rose grasps the concept of birthday parties and is wholeheartedly into the celebration, especially when it comes to the chocolate birthday cupcakes we have for dessert.
She declares Savannah's birthday to be the "yummiest birthday ever," and raising her sippy cup, says, "A toast to chocolate!"
No, I have no idea where Virginia learned about toasting, but it surely makes for laughter all around!
It goes without saying that Savannah and Virginia are Gammie's and Papa's perfect princesses!
As children of God, we are all heirs to the throne of the Almighty where Christ Jesus, the King of Kings, sits at the right hand of the Father. Does that not make all of us princes and princesses in His sight? Yes! We are royalty in His Kingdom. And as we struggle through sufferings in helping bring God's Kingdom here on earth, let us never forget that we are destined to share in His glory one day in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Princess Martha . . .
I like the sound of that!
What would this world look like if we treated everyone we meet as royalty?
Prayer: Father, let Your Kingdom come, let Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. May we, Your children, remember always that we are princes and princesses in Your precious sight. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
