Royalty is My Playing Field
Livy, thank you so much for sharing your heart and the message behind Crown of Beauty! It was so encouraging to listen to what you had to say, and be reminded that no matter how old I am I am still a princess. Growing up, I was constantly told I was a princess because the meaning of my name is "princess." So it was a constant thing and let me be honest and say after a while it gets old. Especially because I am not the most girly of girls; yes I wear make-up and do my hair and dress nicely, but glitter and sequins isn't always my thing. I am more of a nerd; I love video games and Star Wars. (It is what it is, lol!) Because of this, it was always hard for me to reconcile being a princess and being me. But over time, I have realized that I can be me and still be a princess because the God of the Universe named me and knew exactly how I was going to be.
Girly, nerdy, athletic...whatever your "label" is doesn't define your level of princess. Your video definitely reminded me of that. Every girl is a princess, no doubt about it, but more than that every girl is a UNIQUE princess. Our different interests and dreams will help us reach so many different people and it is all for the same goal: pointing others to know Christ.
Royalty really is my playing field.
