There are several mothers in the Bible whom I admire greatly, ones definitely worthy of honor. Jochebed, the mother of Moses, astounds me with her determination to do right-- to save her son’s life despite the plan to kill the baby boys in her day. Her creativeness and skill to make a water-tight ark for her precious son and her trust in God to make things right as she released him in the water cries out, ‘worthy of honor’.
To be sure, my mother isn’t perfect, but just perfect for me. I count my blessings whenever the university girls tell me they know nothing about cooking or the basics of housekeeping; have never felt their mother’s tender hand; or describe the hate and anger experienced from their mother on a regular basis. Yes, my mother is a lovely gift from God.
As this Mother’s Day approaches, I would like to share a give-away with you in honor of my mother, the very first person to purchase my photography. Her constant support of the creative gifts God has given me compels me to do more for God.
In her honor, I will be giving away a 5x7 photograph
from my photography shop.
To enter the give-away:
1. please visit the photography shop
2. Return to this blog and leave me a comment here to tell me which photo would be a blessing to you (or your mother).
3. For a second entry, post an additional comment on this blog describing one reason your mother is a blessing to you.
In addition, I have reduced the price of all 8x10 photos for Mother’s Day.
My desire is to be an encouragement and blessing through my photography, so I am also offering a Mother’s Day coupon you can use to purchase a Scripture Print for your mother or other special woman in your life. The coupon is valid through May 6. Use this code: HNRMOM in the checkout section of the photography shop for an additional $3.00 off when you purchase $18.00 or more.
This give-away will be open through May 5; I will announce the winner on this blog.
** I will be adding more photos to the galleries before Mother's Day. Visit the shop to view the photos or choose the 'Scripture Prints' link at the top of this blog to watch for added photos.
