The heart of the historical heroes,is something that we can all keep in remembrence.Whenever I think of who my heroes where in my life.I think of the accounts of two women in the biblical times.One was the story of the women hero,in Judges the caption of what Deborah-(Bee)her outstanding occupation-as Phrophetess judge over Isreal,(Best Known For)being the only female judge over Isreal.Her prophetic abilities-her song(Judge 5:2-31 NIV),her Hebrew poetry.What a glorious account of a women as one of the biblical heroes.My birth name was given by a relative-according to this heroic women in the biblical times.When I was reading this story of Deborah's great mission according to the calling,which she obediently fullfilled.

Then there is the account of Esther's life calling.Her occupation:Jewish orphan,Queen of persia and Media.(Best known for;),her lengendary beauty,risking her life approaching King Xerxes without being summoned,saving the Jewish people from genocide.What an amazing life calling for her.The Lord illistrates in these two stories-how he can take a normal person and equip them for extraordinary feats to undertake.I pray daily to cultivate the heart of heroes,to live with courage,nobility,strive for out- standing acheivements,for the glory of the Lord.I keep these two women Deobrah-Esther,my mother and my father-always my heavenly devine hero,Jesus Christ,written in the tablets of my heart and soul daily.My hallmark of my hero's,the memory of my father valor and dedication to the Lord,his family and the armed services,though he has passed away many years ago.

My mother for all the years of dedication to mothering five children alone.Which she is stands steadfast in this area today.And her dedication to the Lord,this a winning circle of my life heroes.Glory be to god in the highest.

I was also one of five siblings. If your mother was a patient as mine, she certainly was a hero of heros!
