Do you like fairy tales and stories of love and rescue? Join me over at Club31 Women as we talk about the greatest story of adventure, true love and rescue. The best part is that it is our story!
Have you heard of the show “Once Upon A Time”?
It’s all about fairy tales with a modern twist and I love it! Growing up my favorite kind of stories were fairy tale stories. What’s not to love about villains, magic, sword wielding princes, brave, but in distress, princesses, and of course, true love’s kiss?
There are a plethora of stories about the power of true love. It can wake a sleeping princess from an enchanted sleep, or turn a beast into a prince. True love saves and makes whole. It creates a bond so strong that it all but guarantees a happily ever after ending.
But as we grow up we exchange our beloved fairy tales for something more “realistic”.We now flock to the movies to watch down to earth stories and yet, the theme of love and rescue can be found even in our modern stories. Whether they’re comedy or adventure stories we love seeing justice prevail and true love win.
These stories resonate with us because we know there is something terribly wrong. We see it in ourselves and in the world around us. We know that we need to be rescued, that the world is not as it should be, that evil needs to be defeated, and we need a hero–a deliverer.
All this talk about rescue and love reminds me of the story of the Bible.
