Womens History Month: Hannah

I cannot believe it is already March and the First day of Lent as well as the beginning of Womens' History Month!
Hannah presents Samuel to Eli, Gerbrand van den Eeckhout
As I read the tweets and see the Facebook posts talking about suffragettes and standing up for womens' "rights", I have impulsively decided to dedicate this month to focusing on the Women of the Bible and the amazing things they stood for and represent.

So to start with one of my all time favourites -- Hannah, the mother of Samuel. I love how strong of heart and faith she was to continue praying steadfastly even when "logic" would suggest all hope was gone. And to think that she was willing to "give [her son] to the LORD for all the days of his life" even after asking for him!

The power of her conviction and faith is mind-boggling and so incredible! I hope this has been inspiring for you too...

Blessings and best wishes to all my lovely readers.
