You might have seen Esther from a post awhile back but I decided to paint Esther and put her in my journal. I didn't think I should show the whole journal page put I thought she was the focal point anyway so here she is. I love the story of Esther and I admire her courage when she says.."if I perish, I perish." She is thinking about what she has to do. I imagine that she was very beautiful and probably very young. Her beauty surely worked in her favor but the power and protection of God was what ultimately saved her. In the journal page her crown and necklace are painted in gold but the scanner doesn't pick that up.
