Well, I'll summarize this as briefly as I can because it is at the end of the day and I am rather tired! Lord willing I shall start the school holidays once I finish my Science PACE tomorrow... and then I pray I will get the time to catch up on my slack e-mails, practice my violin and choir songs, do spring clean-up around the house, write lots of letters to pen-pals and friends who haven't heard from me in months, finish sewing a skirt I started, write in my story a good chunk, and do a little posting around here (no pun intended)! Quite a lot, isn't it? I KNOW I won't be able to accomplish most of those goals all in one week and above all that I am hoping to be able to give more time for private devotions and family time!
BUT! In the midst of all that, I'm looking forward to start posting two to three part serial posts about the life of Lady Jane Grey, the 9 day Queen of England who was executed by Queen Mary at the young age of 16 in the year 1554 and has been seen most widely in history as an unfortunate young victim and pawn of ambitious men, men like the Duke of Northumberland and her heartless and ambitious parents who wanted her on the throne to feed their desire for power and control. But to view her as just that, would be missing a big picture of that noble young woman, and perhaps the most vital as well as inspiring and touching. For Lady Jane Grey, even in her youth, was a devout Christian, earnest in her Evangelical faith, courageous in the midst of the trails and turmoils of her time, a humble servant of the Lord and child of God, and ultimately a martyr for Him.
In His love,
