The Princess Diaries

Sunday afternoon between church services several friends and I watched "The Princess Diaries 2." It's a cute movie, where of course everything ends perfectly and makes you think, "Why isn't that me?"
Not that I'm not satisfied with life, but who wouldn't want to be a princess or a queen if they had the chance? I definitely wouldn't turn the opportunity down.
I've even thought about what I would do if I were "Queen." Here's my list:

1. I'd give my church money.
2. I would have Third Day, Casting Crowns, and Gaither music blared from every street corner
3. I would pay off all my debt. It's not a lot, but I'd still like to be debt free.
4. I would help orphans. I have a heart for these kids, and I plan to adopt someday. If I was a queen, I'd be in a position to help lots of them.
5. I'd move my whole family in with me since I'd have tons of room at the palace! The weird ones would get their own wing!
6. I'd take my grandma to Australia. She's always wanted to go. I've always wanted to go. Why not? And of course, anyone else who wanted to go could if they wanted!
7. Since I currently have no kids of my own, I'd make my niece Raegan a princess and my nephew Trace a prince!
8. I'd find a good Christian guy to marry! (I'm working on this one anyway!!! If anyone has a suggestion...LOL!)

How about you? What would you do if you were suddenly made a ruler?

Good question. I like those movies too. It would be fun once you learned all the etiquette stuff. I tend to be too hasty in replies, so I could cause quite a stir at times.

I think being in such a position could open doors to a true Christian walk with Christ in a huge way. I would open the doors to the palace for all, not the select few. I would live my life there, as I do here, hoping to show through example in all areas of my life, 24/7, that Christ is the head, the reason and the inspiration for how I live.

Of course, I would have to work extra hard, extra fast if I were to make the changes that I am working on now become stronger or eliminated since I would have so many at one time able to see me.

As a work in progress, I still have a long way to go!

Debt freedom is also the direction we are working in. Whether it is debt free in my home, or in my kingdom, it is the ultimate goal. How much more good we can do in the world, for the world if we were not tied to debtedness. I hate being limited in my resources available for Christ, due to poor choices... past emergencies, moves... I would rather allow Him full use of the resources he has allowed to me. How much fun would that be?!
