Say NO to the Mess!

The Daily PostTell us about something you’ve done that you would advise a friend never to do.

Sister –

DO NOT marry anyone you don’t love – especially if they are abusive!  Trust me – it will NOT have a fairy tale ending!

I’m beginning to wonder if I blog to make everyone else feel really smart and thankful for their life. So here’s another BIG mistake story from my scary but very true “past” life.

Once upon a time there was a foolish princess (me) who lived with a fire-breathing beast (my mother).  The princess was very angry at the King of Kings (Jesus) for not saving her brother, who killed himself.

So the princess ran far, far away from the kingdom to ruin her life.  She found a monster worse than her fire-breathing beast of a mother to torture her day and night.  Soon the princess and the monster were expecting their own prince of beasts.

The princess wanted to send her baby prince to the kind fairies (adoption) to be loved and grow up to be a fine young prince but her fire-breathing mother stood in the way.  She threatened to eat (adopt) the baby unless the princess agreed to marry the monster and live unhappily ever after.

The King of Kings tried to save the princess and her baby but the mother beast was too crafty.

The King told the vicar to refuse to marry the beautiful princess to the mean, ugly monster,

The Beast threatened to get a new vicar.

The King sent the carriage to a faraway land so the princess couldn’t make it to the feast,

The Beast threw the princess on her own back, chained her down and flew off to the feast.

The monster was an unfaithful monster,

So the King sent the monsters’ other maidens to lure him away,

But the monster was too stupid to follow love.

Finally the princess arrived at the feast, tattered and torn by the mother beast.  She ran to her monster and accepted her fate.  The princess and the monster were chained to one another by the beast as the maidens wept and wailed.

The monster became more violent caged in marriage.  He tried to kill his princess bride to break free of his bondage.

The King of Kings sent many warriors to save the princess but she was locked deep in a tower of shame.  Until one day, our princess saw the monster and the beast closing in on her child.  Armed with the cross of Christ she broke free of her bondage, grabbed her beautiful son and left the land of tears and pain.

Our princess and her little prince lived happily and safely ever after in Christ’s Kingdom.  Amen


Don’t ever marry someone else’s monster! Just say “NO!” to the mess!

Yours Truly,

Karen (the Princess)

  1. You are a Princess! I can’t imagine a strong willed woman like yourself being in that situation but I now realize because of your life experiences it has formed you into a stronger woman of faith, love and hope for others. God gave you the courage to get away. Thank you for sharing your bizarre story.

  2. Thank you for sharing that. I was so sad as your despair deepened, but I am so glad you were able to stand up to those holding you down and used Christ to save yourself and your son!

    • Amen! I wish I had the courage to say NO!at the wedding but am very thankful the Lord never gave up on me even when I gave up on myself! Thank you for your thoughtful comment.

  5. Strong, strong princess. The hotter the fire, the stronger the steel.
    I’m so glad you mad it out of that situation. Don’t kick yourself for not standing up to a harsh mother. That’s an extremely hard thing to do.
