As stated in the dictionary, Victory is:
1. a success or triumph over an enemy in battle or war.
2. an engagement ending in such triumph:
3. the ultimate and decisive superiority in any battle or contest:
4. a success or superior position achieved against any opponent, opposition, difficulty, etc.: a moral victory.
Victory, conquest, triumph refer to a successful outcome of a struggle. Victory suggests the decisive defeat of an opponent in a contest of any kind: victory in battle; a football victory. Conquest implies the taking over of control by the victor, and the obedience of the conquered: a war of conquest; the conquest of Peru. Triumph implies a particularly outstanding victory: the triumph of a righteous cause; the triumph of justice.
All of the above apply right now as My daughter and I prepare to be victorious over someone who did their very best to bring us low. It has been a time of trial and we are so glad to be nearing the end and to see him defeated at last and for good. We pray for justice and know we shall see it done.

It was a beautiful wedding. The couple looked at ease and in love, with each other, as it should be. I wish Kate and Wills a very long and happy life together. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the wedding, every single moment. Sometimes things just seem right.
