Where's my crown?
Mike is really into these battle games on the computer, like Ancient Rome, or the castle building games, kind of roleplaying games. He loves them and can sit for hours playing them. We also love the old history movies of ancient times. There is one story I can't remember the name of it, but it's about a man who is determined to have the royal infant killed. He summons someone else to do away with the baby prince. The officer in turn has a herdsmen to take the child way up in the mountains and leave him there to die of the terrain. The herdsman and his wife however take the child and raise him as their own, him growing up not knowing about his royal heritage, because he was pretty much a herdsman son and grew up poor. Then he ends up on an adventure that takes him back home. It was pretty good but this movie got me to thinking like just about everything. We are like this, we so often do not realize our royal heritage through Christ. I remember my mom telling me when I was little, we may be poor but we have a castle waiting for us in Heaven. We have been given everything we need, so let's not live like the peasants in the potato sacks. Let's live like the royals do. Hope everyone is having a great week. Prince Derek
