Today is for you.
Yes, I have a gift.
The pre-requisite? You have to be hungry.
Hunger comes in many forms, as we mamas know.
Hungry is the child who can’t quite scoot off of our lap when the last page of the book is read. And hungry is the mama who parents those unending needs.
Hungry is the little girl who narrates her day, looking for a witness to her chalk art on the driveway and her babydoll’s new outfit. And hungry is the mama who lives 8 of that day’s hours with only One witness.
Hungry is the chubby-cheeked toddler at snack-time. “Cracker, mommy?” you might hear a dozen times a week. And hungry is the mama who is always feeding — but remembering the good old days when the Word wasn’t aloof, but was her food.
Hungry is the teenager who cracks open her heart as her body sprawls across your comforter at 10pm. Bedtime is her heart-time and you don’t want to miss it, no matter how tired you are. Hungry is the mama who prays prayers past midnight for the adolescent hearts under her care to grow in God, wondering how it’ll all shake out.
So, are ya hungry?
I know I am.
Tucked away inside these pages is the story of a heart that bleeds and breathes and comes alive in God. It’s the story of your heart (and it’s the story of mine). And today its available on bookshelves and in warehouses and, for some of you already, at your doorstep.
Though not something I often do, I’d love to offer a little giveaway because the words within these pages speak of Him and I want to make Him known.
Two Mothers of Daughters will win a copy of “Every Bitter Things is Sweet.”
How do you participate?
Leave a little note here, below in the comments (maybe, even, tell us how you’re experiencing that hunger today).
And for the ones, like me, who might need a little help — here’s something you can run with ….
Entries for this giveaway will remain open until Sunday, October 12th at 8pm EST. We’ll let our two winners know early next week and you’ll have those crisp new books in hand before you know it.
