A another brief glimpse into history, a true love story...

Once upon a time the royal ruler, the young Duke of Normandy, looked down from his roof and, like David, spied a beautiful young woman.  Alas, she was naught but a peasant, too much below him to choose as a wife.  So he sent word for her to come to him by a back passageway.  The wise young woman refused, unwilling to be used as a common mistress.  She sent word back to him that the only way she would come to him would be mounted on a white horse and led in the front gate for all to see.  He did, she did, and became the Countess of Normandy.  She also became known as "The Lioness" for her bravery before royalty demanding respect though of lower class.  Their marriage produced our lineage of long ago.  Sadly, too many beautiful young ladies are willing to go by the back passageway when God has a better way planned.  We need more Lionesses, daughters of the Lion of Judah.

"He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
And obtains favor from the Lord."
Proverbs 18:22
