"On the third day Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the palace, in front of the king’s hall. The king was sitting on his royal throne in the hall, facing the entrance. When he saw Queen Esther standing in the court, he was pleased with her and held out to her the gold scepter that was in his hand. So Esther approached and touched the tip of the scepter." Esther 5:1-2
A lot of people do not know how much Esther risked going to the king. Back then, if you went uninvited to see the king, you were killed immediately, By putting out his scepter, he saved her life. A lot of people in this day and age do not have that kind of courage. Would you risk death to save a people? (A good movie to watch is "One night with the King")
Today is moving day. I drop Coco off at school, go to the bank and get the rest of the rent money, go pay the rent/get the keys, come back, meet Yvi, take the first load over. Take a load or two in my car, wait for Anna to be done work, she takes a load over, we go pick up the big van, take the table/matresses over. Then we go shopping, wash all the dishes (no dishwasher) and set up the house. So excited!. We still need a kettle and a dresser. If everyone could pray that we find those.
