Writing Letters to Yourself

Nobody likes waiting, at least nobody that I know. Well, I take that back. I do like waiting for somethings, like taking medicine or getting a shot. But even then you want to get it over with and it is better to do something then just wait around! And in the end you know that the medicine -or a shot- is for your benefit. So I take back what I took back. Basically, nobody likes waiting.

We as Princesses are waiting for our Knight or Prince to come for us, but like I said before, it is better to do something then just waiting around. Sometimes -even though we are serving The King by helping a friend or doing something else that is a blessing to someone-we start to get lonely. Why can't he come now? You feel so discouraged. Maybe your Prince went to the wrong castle! Perhaps you should give him directions! I bet when you saw the title you were thinking " 'Writing Letters to Yourself ' well that's selfish!" or "Why would I need to do that?".

Some time you will feel lonely and you will need some encouragement to keep on staying pure. Say right now you are not feeling discouraged and you are thinking "What are you talking about? I could care less about waiting for my prince! I'll almost (or I am) a teenager! I'm not going to get married until I'm like 20 or something!" Good! So now would be a great time to write yourself a letter to encourage yourself later that staying pure for your Prince is the right thing to do.

This is a song written by a band of three sisters. Their band is called "BarlowGirl" and they are awesome role models for young ladies!

And here are the lyrics:

I waited for you today
But You didn't show
I needed You today
So where did you go?
You told me to call
Said You'd be there
And though I haven't seen You
Are You still there?
I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone.
And though I can not see You
And I can't explain why.
Such a deep, deep reassurance You've placed in my life
Oh, We cannot separate
'Cause You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen
I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone
We cannot separate;
You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen
I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I'm never alone!
I really like this song and would recommend it for whenever you are feeling down and alone. Hum this to yourself, or at least remember this; you are NEVER ALONE. Waiting for your Prince will be hard at some point and you will need some encouragement. Here is some free encouragement for you, today and/or any day!

Speaking (well, technically it should be "typing" because I am not exactly "speaking" ;) of encouragement, here is a letter I wrote to myself:
NOTE: I call myself "My Friend" instead of "Dear Catherine" because I think it would be funny to write the letter "Dear Catherine" and end it "From Catherine", but that is just my personal preference)
From one flower garden to another………..

My Friend,

I understand that this might be hard for you. I pray that you are to persevere and carry though your promise of purity.
Remember that God cares for you and instead of leaning on boys or your understanding/feelings (see Proverbs 3:5) that you don’t plan on marrying now or ever, lean on God, let Him care for you like He cared for Israel in the desert, like He cared for Samson when Samson disobeyed God and like God cared for Nineveh even though they were not Israel, His chosen people.
In Matthew 5:8 it reads:
”Blessed are the Pure in heart for they shall see God.”
Jesus spoke these words and as you know Jesus never has, will, or did lie so it is true. Instead of going and pleasing boys, please God.
In Psalm 69:29-36 King David calls out to God because his troubles are closing in around him. This is what he says:

But I am afflicted and in pain;
May Your salvation, O God, set me securely on high.
I will praise the name of God with song
And magnify Him with thanksgiving.
And it will please the LORD better than an ox
Or a young bull with horns and hoofs.
The humble have seen it and are glad;
You who seek God, let your heart revive.
For the LORD hears the needy
And does not despise His who are prisoners.
Let heaven and earth praise Him,
The seas and everything that moves in them.
For God will save Zion and build the cities of Judah,
That they may dwell there and possess it.
The descendants of His servants will inherit it,
And those who love His name will dwell in it.

David says that the LORD hears the needy’s cries and answers them (vs. 33). God will hear your cry and He will lift you from your “pit”.

In Lamentations 3:55-58 Jeremiah calls out to God saying:

I called on Your name, O LORD,
Out of the lowest pit.
You have heard my voice, "Do not hide Your ear from my prayer for relief, From my cry for help."
You drew near when I called on You;
You said, “Do not fear!"
O Lord, You have pleaded my soul's cause;
You have redeemed my life.
And in verse 22 it reads:

The LORD'S loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail.

Jeremiah calls out, God answers. When Israel called out in Egypt, God answered. HE will answer your prayers. Psalm 91 talks about (if you would call it “talking”) the security in those who trust in the one true GOD. Go to God. Let Him wrap His ever-loving and ever-caring arms around you.

In Psalms 1:1 it reads:

Blesses is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Or stand in the way of sinners,
Or sit in the seat of mockers.

We learned about the Dangers of The Dating System in the chapter 2 of the book Before You Meet Prince Charming by Sarah Malley and how it is wicked because of the selflessness involved in it. “I want to be happy. I want to have fun NOW” and such ideas as these.
So in short, keep growing as the pure white rose that God wants you to have. Let your light shine and let your rose grow to the beauty it can, don’t let some boy ruin it just so he/you can have fun now.

Remain Pure,
Your Sister in Christ,

Princess Catherine


  1. Very incouraging! I think I'll do that, too.

  2. Wow I love that song!
    Another good song I think of time to time is Average Girl by Barlow girl. Then you could ask your mom if she's heard of a song called both sides now. One of the line is
    Don't give yourself away
    I just thought it was kind of interesting.If you want to look it up on youtube try the song search under Hayley Westenra
