I visited my friend tonight. We shared a yummy meal and swapped stories. Her life is pretty chaotic right now, but she is still standing. I am so proud of her.
After dinner, she turned on the television in hopes of catching a bit of the ice skating coverage at the Olympics. We both decided that we want to be ice skaters in heaven. We would compete as a pair.
We chatted over the noise of the television and paid little attention to the skiers and bob sledders. But then, the ice skating began, and we were riveted to the screen. The lone female skater wore red, which looked lovely against her porcelain skin. Her movements flowed through my heart. Such grace and beauty and poetry!
When the performance was over, Barby remarked that the young skater looked just like a Warrior Princess.
“I love it,” I replied. “That should be our theme for the year. You and me will be Warrior Princesses.”
On the drive home, this battle weary princess remembered it was Wednesday. I knew I had this post to write, so when I settled on the couch with my laptop, I googled “Warrior Princess.” And as you can imagine, I ended up reading a Wikipedia article on a 90’s television show called “Xena, The Warrior Princess.”
The description of the warrior princess captured my attention:
…an infamous warrior on a quest to seek redemption for her past sins against the innocent by using her formidable fighting skills to now help those who are unable to defend themselves.
My King fights for our redemption. As His Warrior Princess, I am equipped with formidable weapons to wage war and uphold the defenseless. This is my quest:
Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
Psalms 82:3 & 4, NIV
