Art giveaway & fundraiser

2013-11-17_0006

After spending many hours in my art studio recently preparing for some upcoming shows, 
I decided it would be fun to host an art giveaway.

That’s right…you have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win one of these original pieces of art!

"Be still" 
24x24 mixed media on birch board. 
 Inspired by Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God." 
 This piece will go to the first place winner.

"Act" 
10x10 mixed media on birch board. 
 Inspired by one of my favorite verses Proverbs 24:12 
"Once our eyes have been opened we cannot pretend we do not know what to do,
God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, 
knows that we know and holds us responsible to act." 
This piece will go to the second place winner.

"Unto me" 
6x6 mixed media on birch board. 
 Inspired by the verse for which my art and photography business are named...Matthew 25:40 
"Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me."
This piece will go to the third place winner.  

As many of you know, God began stirring our hearts over a year ago to consider adopting again.
 In March of this year we took the leap of faith and began the process of filling out paperwork to bring home our daughter to her forever family (you can read more about that here).

We have experienced the miracle of adoption first hand with our daughter Lily and we are so grateful that we said “yes” (even in the midst of our fears of the unknown) and didn’t miss out on the blessing she is to our family.

We are now just weeks away from having our “LID” (Log In Date), which in the adoption world is a huge milestone that marks another step closer to being matched with the little one God has chosen for our family!

We are not all called to adopt; however we can all do something to help be the light and hope
to children who wait to know the love of a family.

So…perhaps you are looking for a practical way to give back this season AND
possibly win something you can keep for yourself or give as a gift!

We ask that you consider making a donation of $5.00 or more to enter
(for every $5 donation your name will be entered once)
Simply click on the “donate” button at the top of the blog to enter for your chance to win.

If you are unable to donate, you can also enter by leaving a comment that includes
your name and email address so that I can contact you should you win.
 All winners must have a shipping address in the United States or Canada.

All donations go directly toward our adoption expenses.
Every dollar makes a difference and helps us reach the amount we need to bring our daughter home.

The art giveaway will end at 11:59 PM CST Monday, December 9th.
There will be three lucky winners chosen from all who participate!
 Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced Wednesday, December 11th.

Robert Harris shared Michael's email with me this morning. I did not know about the addition to the Rankin's! I remember Lily's stores so well. What a blessing she along with her big brother! You and Michael are so special to do this for these beautiful children that need loving homes. Please keep your Blogs going so we will know your journey in bringing your little one home. God only gives these blessings to very special people! He is good!

I seldom leave responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here %BLOG_TITLE%. And I actually do have some questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of the responses appear like left by brain dead visitors?
