A Royal Meeting

July 16, 2011

Will and Kate are wrapping up their visit and by all accounts they took Canada and the States by storm.  Unless you have been living under a rock then you know that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been on a belated, extended honeymoon.  Their journey has taken them from PEI to Nunavut to Hollywood.   If you asked them, I’m sure the highlight of the trip was meeting Steve and Jen Akins and the kids in Charlottetown and their biggest disappointment would have been missing Dean at the Stampede…… just saying.  
They seem like very nice people, but you understand, they are just people.  In theory, they put their pants on one leg at a time and they struggle with many of the same issues that we do. 
I am amazed at how people will drive hundreds of kilometres and stand around for hours to get a glimpse at  a couple who someday may be King and Queen of England but show no interest in meeting and developing a relationship with the King and Master of the universe.  
Meeting and greeting Will and Kate might provide a memory that will last a lifetime but meeting the King of the Universe can provide us with the grace that will last an eternity.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
