This was originally posted on Instagram (follow me at @ellyandgrace for lots of fun stuff!) and I thought I'd post it here too!
This was one of my first shirt designs and it's still one of my favorites!
I started thinking about circumstances that we are all in. Each of these women, except perhaps Deborah, had things happen to them that were out of their control.
Abigail was married to a bad man, Esther was an orphan and had to keep her race a secret to stay safe, Mary was a young unwed pregnant girl, and Ruth became a widow in a foreign land with her mother in law.
I'm sure each of them thought at some point- why me? Why is this happening to me? My life was planned, now things have totally changed.
Each of them came through it with God. Abigail became a wife of a king, Esther became a queen, Ruth found a new husband and Mary was the mother of Jesus. WOW! Talk about women to live up to! And what a dream squad.
And I want to know! Is there someone you would have added to this list?
