There are some shady ladies in the Bible.God uses the most unlikely people for His purpose.

Matthew 1: 3 (NIV) Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar 

Matthew 1: 5 (NIV) Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,  

He makes shady situations into Lamp Posts of Extended Grace.  

Luke 11: 36 (NIV) Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.”
