Wanted to honor and celebrate the life of an extraordinary woman who has served the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth for almost 70 years in the dutiful role of Queen and has just laid to rest the body of her beloved husband Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, after 73 years of marriage.
While her heart, mind and soul are still in a period of mourning, I wanted to take time to acknowledge her birthday and years of public service. She embodies a sense of commitment that seems foreign to many today, but her dedication to duty and the people should be observed, explained, and taught to future generations.
Just a small way to commemorate her birthday and the calling placed on her life. A reminder to ponder what has God called us to and how can we serve and pray for one another. Used this Meri Meri It's British cupcake assorted cases and filled them with a delicious blueberry muffin mix to share with my boys for breakfast, along with a lesson of history.
As I talk with my sons, I am reminded that we are to mourn with those who are in mourning and rejoice with those who are rejoicing. It's still a bittersweet time for a recent widow turning 95, but sending our love and prayers to a great-grandmother, who also just happens to be the world's oldest reigning monarch.

Read aloud by Justin Portal Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury
at the service of Prince Philip
“Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”
Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
“Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
John 11:21-27 (KJV)
