It's Tough Being a Woman...

Getting together with a group of women is so much fun! Wednesday nights I participate in a women's Bible Study at my church. We have been studying the book of Esther. Now Esther is one of the best stories of the Bible for women to read/study. First of all there are lots of parties, celebrations and feasts. There is a king who could be some of the people I've worked with/for. Talk about delegating! This guy didn't want to do anything that didn't involve partying. He handed off all responsibility to his gang members, then waltzed away to have another goblet of wine.

First, he got rid of his queen when she refused to come and parade around a room full of drunken men. So, goodbye trophy queen. Then he realized what he'd done, but didn't know what to do about it. This is a man who could not make a single decision by himself. Enter another trophy queen, Esther. But Esther was faced with a huge task shortly after becoming queen. How she overcame her predicament and managed to save the day is extraordinary and very uplifting.

When I get to heaven I want to meet Esther!

The Beth Moore bible study is focused on the theme "It's tough being a woman..."

With a room full of women and Beth Moore, you can't go wrong. Laughter, love, and insight into God's word. I came home last night blessed.

Thanks for stopping by!
