Tuesday mornings I rise and shine with
great anticipation for the day.  Our pastor's
wife is teaching the ladies of our church
about special women in the Bible.
Today, we learned about Esther. Her life was
important enough that God saw fit to give
her a complete book  in the Bible. 
"And the king loved Esther above all the women,
and she obtained grace and favour in his sight....
so that he set the royal crown upon her head,
and made her queen." Esther 2:l7
Our discussion led to how Esther was such
a powerful enfluence on the king, that he
granted to her whatever she desired.
We were asked if we were influenced  by anyone
in our lives.  Most responses for good influence were mothers,
grandmothers, friends. 
We talked of associating with those who are bad
influence on us....old friends and co workers
were mentioned.
Then we were asked
whether we had been a positive  influence on anyone.
This led to discussion of how we are perceived
by others as we go about our daily living.
How do our actions affect, altar or sway others?
Hmmm....good lesson to ponder..... 
Next week we
study Miriam...Moses's sister. Can't wait!
May God protect and bless you today.....Dee Dee
