If you want a phone conversation, leave your phone # in the email and I will call you.

As Always, Love You, Jane.

Did You Know?  That a young girl (Esther) was crowned queen of a very large kingdom because an older woman (Queen Vashti) refused to obey the King (her husband). The young girl was used by God to save her whole family and all her families people (the Jews) from a certain death. What a fascinating story (another mystery…why am I here?) from the Bible. Read the rest of the story in the Book of Esther.

My Bible quote for this post: Esther 4:14 ….”and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this.

    Hey Jane, The email I received was not good. I am not happy with the way it was sent. Could you check it out? I couldn’t reply with this comment for several days. Something has been wrong with the comment section of your blog also. This was a good post even though you can’t tell if anyone has responded to it. Love Your posting, keep it up!
