My father was born in America, but his heritage was German. His ancesters were born in Germany. His last name was Gesswein. Centuries ago, his family had the name GOSSWEIN, the spelling got changed through the years. There is a small place in Germany named GOSSWEINSTEIN , with a beautiful palace, which was in his family line.
It was the tradition that the oldest son would be the king, and of course his daughter, the princess. That tradition stopped long, long ago, but had it continued... my dad (the oldest son) would have been the king and that would make me (his daughter, as well as my sister)...a princess! (and my brother a prince.)
Here is the brochure from what is today a tourist area in Germany, named GOSSWEINSTEIN. The castle was built in the 1100's, and later given to our ancestors for occupancy.
This place is absolutely beautiful! I don't think I've ever been a drama queen, or princess, but... not sure I couldn't adjust!
I wonder if I visit there one day, if they will treat me as royalty??
It's good to know that Isa. 62:3 tells us..."You will be a crown of splendor in the LORD's hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God."
While this is all true and part of my earthly family, the real story is...
There is royal blood in my family line, and it comes from God Himself!! He is my father and I am His heir!
That's all the royalty I will ever need...
