    Ive felt like I identify with Saul for awhile now more than anyone else. Solomon would probably be 2nd.

    Since nobody else is stepping forward.

    Ahem

    I identify with Tamar. If I sign up for something and do my part, I expect that everybody else will get in formation to hold up their end of the deal. If not then I'ma develop a cunning plan to force hands and get what's rightfully mine and my public apology regardless of who it embarrasess. Judah, did Tamar right dirty but he underestimated the lengths that a clever woman with a sovergn based code of conduct would go to secure the bag.

    I want to be as optimistically fearless as Joshua but I'm not completely there yet.

    Jonah makes me smile. Goes in the opposite direction to God's command and God has to strong arm him back on track.

    I hope I am not like him, but I always enjoy the book of Jonah.

    ^^Jonah is amusing. I could see him pouting and crossing his hands over his chest, asking God why him... lol

    For me, I can see a mix of Lydia and Esther - all business, headstrong but fair, personality but still have time for God and the things of God. I'm still working on my life balance, though.

    Romans 16:12
    Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, those women who work hard in the Lord. Greet my dear friend Persis, another woman who has worked very hard in the Lord.

    Me. The hardworking woman in the background. I do my best work this way!
