The Queen’s Crown

Among the miles of words written about our late this Queen, I read this snippet. Talking with her chaplain, the Queen said that she would so love to live to see the Lord’s return, so that she could lay her crown at His feet. I imagine that is what she has now done.

We will not have a regal crown to lay at our Lord’s feet, but we will have a crown of our achievements, our sadnesses and our sorrows. There will be the crown of our failures and our repentance.

The size or importance of our crowns will not matter. The value of our offering will be accompanied by our thankful hearts.
