“Joshua, we must have hope.  God will send us the deliverer.”
~Lilia, The Ten Commandments~

She’s not afraid to bow before a man.

I like this about her.  There’s something strikingly beautiful about a woman who knows where she stands.  She stays firm in her doubt and is not afraid to be afraid.  Her vulnerability glows with a feminine radiance.  She is a woman so rare, a beauty so fair beyond the senses, he cannot help but wonder who she is and where she came from.

These ancient scripts were the ones to teach me.  There is the princess of pagan royalty, her charm mixed up with greed and deceit, who can be loved by Ramses, but never trusted by him.  Then there is the water maid of Hebrew slavery, or the foreign shepherd girl, her loyalty humble with hope and respect, cursed with a likeness that steals her from men.

These are the women I was drawn to as a girl.

“Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
~Proverbs 31~
