I am one happy Momma this evening! My aunt came today, she helped at the grocery store this morning, and then this afternoon she helped wrap all of the kids Christmas presents. Which means one less (huge) chore checked off my to-do list. Which is totally awesome considering I am actually a day behind in my advent devotional. I did not realize this yesterday when I posted, I apologize. My mind is gone for a ride on the crazy train, December is a wild wild ride.
The story of Esther is one I have studied in depth while joining in a Bible study by Beth Moore. As I read over the verses in my Bible, Beth’s voice and key points kept coming to mind. There were so many places I wanted to stop and say “highlight this point, or stop at those words.” This book of the Bible has so much more to tell then I have in this post. I tried to shorten and simplify the story into a quick devotional we could read over dinner, but keep the points that stood out to me. I urge you to read this one for yourself in the book of Esther and truly enjoy the story! I have only skimmed the surface of a great book of the Bible. Also if you ever get the chance to be apart of Beth Moore’s study of Esther, jump at it… it was so good!
I have definitely missed a few days on my Jesse Tree Devotional, probably because every time I think I have a moment it goes in a flash! I apologize for not keeping up, by next year I will have all these ready to go and here for you. Currently I am up to my eye balls in laundry, my house is a disaster, and snow is coming down outside non stop. I have shoveled twice today and still need to go out again, but the white snow does look beautiful and Christmas like.
I hope you were able to read yesterday’s post. I was away with my Aunt for the day so I left my work half done, then asked Joel to finish and post it for me. I will link my Jesse Tree Day Seven post here, and if you want to go back you can. As for today’s I will post below.
