Personally, I’m into the Stanley Cup playoffs and the Vancouver Canucks hockey team right that’s happening right now. For males, it’s probably not the coolest thing to be so completely dazzled by this ‘wedding thing’ for Prince William and princess-to-be Kate Middleton. On the other hand, if you’re a female, this is ‘the thing’ to be watching on the television early tomorrow morning. I’m not trying to be sexist but this is absolutely a ‘woman thing’. But male or female, this couple has caught the hearts of many people, young and old, rich and poor, all races and nations.
Royal memorabilia are selling all over the place. My wife plans to buy some Canadian stamps of Will & Kate, and me, maybe a Union Jack. She wants it for memory’s sake, but I’d get it for the sake of having a potential collector’s item. And what about the replica of Kate’s famous blue wedding ring? No, I think I’ll stop there. There are just too many of those floating around…and who wants to be carrying a huge blue nugget on your finger that’s weighs a pound?
What is it with this wedding that makes it so special? If you’re a woman, you’re likely going to be caught up into this royal wedding. This is huge in the commonwealth country of Canada, and equally huge in the United States and around the world.
But why? Is it because it’s royalty? Is it because it’s British royalty? Or is it because they look like such an adoring couple? Why the huge interest? Why is there not the same level of interest as other royal weddings around the world? I don’t know why but, as a male, even I’m interested in this wedding.
Will and Kate, have a happy wedding today and a wonderful life together as Prince and Princess (“Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”), and eventually, as future King and Queen of England.
Here’s my gift of Scripture for this wonderful and happy couple:
Jesus answered, “Don’t you know that in the beginning the Creator made a man and a woman? That’s why a man leaves his father and mother and gets married. He becomes like one person with his wife. Then they are no longer two people, but one. And no one should separate a couple that God has joined together.” (Matthew 19:4-6, ESV)
