Daughters of Kings....

Aragorn: You have some skill with a blade.
Eowyn: The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them. I fear neither death nor pain.
Aragorn: What do you fear, my lady?
Eowyn: A cage. To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.
Aragorn: You are a daughter of kings, a shield maiden of Rohan. I do not think that will be your fate.

"He has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen" -Revelation 1:6

Here are some peeks at the content that is in the mix for our upcoming Daughter's Of Kings: Mother's Day's not going to be a typical Saccharine Sunday.
Most women face the challenge of not being seen for who they truly are...they are warriors inside a princess or princesses inside a warrior and those around them fail to see the hidden person of the heart (1 Peter 3:4)
Our culture has fed women lies, filled them with inflated visions of a false reality that becomes a tortuous master that grinds their spirits into submission to the elementary principles of this world. To many daughters have lived for too long in servitude to someone elses vision of who they should be.
"We cannot live in a world that is not our own, in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a home. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening, to use our own voice, to see our own light." -Hildegard von Bingen
(Germany 1100 AD)

"Shout and be glad, O Daughter of Zion. For I am coming, and I will live among you," declares the LORD." -Zechariah 2:10

I adore that picture of Eowyn which, in my opinion, captures her essence quite powerfully. And the scene depicted in your post... I can still feel the emotion it inspired in me the very first time I watched it and was changed by it. God speaks to my heart so powerfully through those movies and stories. Indeed, God has already come to live amongst us in the midst of them. :)

wow, that's a moving video, to understate it. With 7 granddaughters this has a very relevant message for me. The false demands, impossible expectations make walking humbly and living simply nearly impossible. The influence of the world builds such false expectations in both sexes, I honestly don't know which is harder, for men or women. The concept of being thankful for food and rainment is so foreign in our culture it boggles the mind.
Great video,
