A long time ago there lived a beautiful young princess named Beatrice. Beatrice was beautiful, kind and rich. Consequently, men often sought her affections. Despite this, Beatrice had never met a man she was willing to marry.
Every night as she lay in bed, she wondered if she would ever meet the right man. Finding love became her only goal.
“God, will you ever send me someone?” she prayed one night. “How long do I have to wait? I so want a husband.”
Just as she finished praying, her mother poked her head into the room. “Knock, knock,” she said as she entered. “Look at the time. My, it’s late for you to be awake.” Noticing Beatrice’s sad expression, she sat on the edge of her bed. “Oh, child, what is wrong?”
“Perhaps I’m being silly, but I’m worried I’ll never find a mate.”
“Quit worrying!” Realizing Beatrice was quite upset, she softened her tone. “Sometimes God’s timing is different than our own.” Tenderly, she stroked Beatrice’s hair. “Until it’s time, just focus on becoming a woman worthy of a Godly man.”
“Very good advice, Mother.”
“Why don’t you go to sleep now?”
“Excellent idea.” Yawning, Beatrice snuggled down under her covers.
“ZZZZZZ,” was the only sound she made as her mother quietly tiptoed from the room.
