THROWN BY THE BOOK, THRONED BY THE BOOK

One king, one sleepless night, one book and one reading.

Two men, two nations, two decrees and two outcomes.

Three days of fasting, two days of feasting, one queen and one request.

The rest is not just history, but crucial change in history!

 

Haman dug a pit for another, fell into it himself, lost honor, head, home and history.

Mordecai sat quietly at the gate, did good, gained it all.

At the heart of one’s loss and another’s gain was a book.

The king’s heart was in God’s hand and He turned it,

By a book, the book of historical  records!

 

*The story of Haman’s plot against Mordecai and his nation of Jews, the intervention of Queen Esther with an appeal to the great King Ahasureus, the subsequent prevention of a genocide, can all be read in the Book of Esther in the Bible.

    1. Thanks Dale.
      Veggie tales give you only a gist. Plus the title makes us focus on a specific thing. Reading the full gives you the intricate beauty of whole and the weaving of the various nuances that make up the whole!

      1. Thanks! That was the idea. I wanted the name to be something every mom would identify with and aim to format the blog the same way. Something for everyone to relate to, or at least enjoy. 🙂
