Just To Inspire You...

There's been a lot of discussion of the Royal Family of late in the media. I'm not getting involved in that here. I respect the Queen, I believe her reign displays dignity and duty, underpinned by her strong faith. 
Years ago, I read that a special service was being planned [I think it was VE Day 50th commemoration in 1995, but I cannot locate evidence] and they asked Prince Philip for his favourite Bible passage. Below are the words he chose. They are from Paul's letter to the church in Philippi [maybe being Greek himself, this really resonated with the Prince!] Whatever you faith you do [or don't] profess, these are wise words worth sharing. Something positive to think about when we are being bombarded with fake news, unkind words, and general bad stuff.


  1. Thank you for the inspiration, Angela. We could all learn something about duty and service from the Queen.

  2. LOVE it! I love the Queen, too!

  3. This is my favorite Scripture, I love it so much. Paul wrote this from prison and in this letter the words joy and rejoice appear 18 times. I am reading "Finding Joy in Philippians". I admire the Queen and how she handles her difficult position and send her and you best wishes from California.

  4. Thank you Terra. Philippians is a great epistle. And it IS easier to find joy and to rejoice when we focus on the good things not on the negatives
