Wasn’t Esther married? I mean she became a Queen?
You’re right about that, she did get married to the King Persia, technically, but I was solely focusing on her journey of becoming queen. Esther was a woman of high standard; ladies if you think you’re high maintenance, look at the lengths it took for someone to become queen. Beauty treatments, massages and the like. That sounds all good, but you got to know your value. Esther had high esteem for God and for her people. I think as women, we either tend to focus either all on the outside appearance or on our character in which we neglect the outside. Esther, sister girl here focused on both.
How long did it take for you to make this piece?
It did not take long to do, but I had to pace myself, since her story is relatively short. As a young person, she was raised with knowing the heritage of her people and with that came favor from the Lord.
