For the throne is established on righteousness. - Proverbs 16:12

It is 65 years ago today, that Queen Elizabeth was crowned as Queen in Westminster Abbey. We have been blessed to have such a sovereign. Head of not just the United Kingdom but the British Commonwealth and the Anglican Church. It was believed in Centuries past that Kings had a divine right to rule. The Bible tends to support this but also suggests if you have read the books of Kings and Chronicles at all that they carry an enormous responsibility before God for their actions and the actions of the people in their nation. Our Queen has carried that responsibility with dignity and grace through the years, she has well earned from us her people, our love and respect.

I honour her on this the anniversary of her ascending to the throne by remembrance of that day and prayers, long may she reign.
