Long Live Queen Elizabeth II
What a fun and historic day this was! Queen Elizabeth is now the longest reigning monarch in British history (beating out Queen Victoria)!
I've always been a royal fan, not to mention an avid student of British history, so it was very exciting to think that we are living in this kind of historic moment. It called for clootie dumpling scones and real Assam tea for breakfast.
Michael had the exact days of Queen Elizabeth's reign taped up on the landing when the kids came down in the morning and he kept Classic FM playing in the background all day since they were playing royal music for 24 hours.
At the library one of my clerk friends and I struck up a conversation with another patron who came from London at one time. We were all so excited about the significance of today.
Oh I know some people laugh at all of this "nonsense" but you know, I have found my interest in royalty helpful to me. God chose to reveal Christ to us as our King and as I have observed imperfect royalty and the workings of the monarchy here on this earth it has aided me in understanding my perfect King Jesus. So let the celebrations roll on! And may Queen Elizabeth continue to have a long and prosperous reign.
