Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day…

Well, I do tend to be a girly-girl and adore all things cute, pretty and pink..I have fun making my husband and family sweets…and of course I enjoy chocolate, cute thoughtful cards, fresh flowers, etc…

But, the way I prefer to approach Valentine’s Day is to focus on the greatest love of all – God’s love for us….

He IS Love.

In closing, I would like to share one more thing because I think it is important for me to share my heart for Jesus.

And may this hope that reaches to the depths of human need, Be the song that I sing in joy and in suffering. For you are the LOVE that never leaves, The friend that won’t deceive,  You are the one sure thing.” (Lyrics from Faithful God by Laura Story)

My faith in God and his constant grace in my life have made me who I am today. My work is one way for me to “overflow” this joy into others’ lives. Thank you for visiting my site and reading my post (-:

Happy Valentines Day!
