All Glorious Within

Psalm 45 is a beautiful passage of Scripture. It describes a king which certainly seems to be the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In verse nine it begins to talk about women, and there are lessons for Christian women and their earthly relationships with men and others in the descriptions found here. First, though, we witness the …

Godly Womanhood

(A note on the picture with this post: Just to prove women can be both beautiful and godly, three Barbie "Makeovers" representing characters from Edmund Spenser's epic allegory the Faerie Queene: Left to right, Gloriana, representing the glory of God, Una, representing Truth, and Goldenberry, wife of Satyrane, a godly knight protecting Una in her …
