214/365: in the Spirit of Jesus

Friday April 29th Royal Wedding a la Turku

It might have been really easy to have missed God in all of the pomp and ceremony of the royal wedding, except for one thing … He was truly present in so much of it. Kate and William’s prayer (read by the bishop of London) hit the spot for me

“‘God our Father, we thank you for our families; for the love that we share and for the joy of our marriage. In the busyness of each day keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy. Strengthened by our union, help us to serve and comfort those who suffer. We ask this in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Amen’.”

It was a lot of fun being with friends to celebrate this great day and a sumpteous tea was enjoyed by all of us.
