Thanks for your comments; LOVED reading them. Have a great week!
This week I was thinking about all the mothers of the Bible and their stories. When I look at them, they sure went through a lot of heartache, didn’t they?
I mean, the very first mother in the Bible, Eve, didn’t exactly have perfect children from the get-go. One son killed the other. Wow, the human race, off to a great start! And then there’s Jochabed, Moses’ mother, who had to hide her baby in the river to keep the king from killing him. Poor Sarah, she waited for motherhood until her husband was “as good as dead.” Now THAT was a long wait. There’s the tale of the beautiful Bathsheba who lost her sweet baby boy to Heaven before she had the chance to get to know him.
The point is mothers of the Bible…they shared the same heartaches as we do. Sibling rivalry, in-law matters, miscarriage, loss of child, infertility…and the list could go on and on.
In my ebook “The Sensational Scent of Prayer,” released just this week, the Bible story focus is mostly on Hannah. Her story is absolutely intriguing; did you know that she is the only woman in the Bible with two recorded prayers? Her mother’s heart was so huge for her son. But it was even bigger for God.
So in celebration of mothers everywhere, I’m giving away 2 ebooks for Mother’s Day! Just leave a comment answering who your favorite mother is. I bet I already know most of the answers. But you can leave a tribute to her as well. Can’t wait to read your comments!
I’ll announce the winners on Monday. Have a fabulous Mother’s Day!!
PS: My personal favorite Mother’s Day story is at the end of “The Sensational Scent of Prayer.” Hope you’ll read it!
