Happy Valentine's Day!
"Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Loves doesn't want what it doesn't have....doesn't force itself on others, isn't always 'me first,' doesn't fly off the handle, doesn't keep score of the sins of others....puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end."
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 MSG
I'm so grateful. It hasn't felt like it lately, nor did it feel like it 4 1/2 years ago. But I do. I have the love of an amazing man, who has continued to help me heal, and who loves me despite how I treat him sometimes. He is a treasure and I love him so deeply. I had the love of a man who was taken from this earth much to soon. He was an incredible man of God. Although I miss him and love him, there was no one I knew/know more to be with Jesus, than him. And now and always, I have the love of a Father who loves unconditionally. I can mess up, be selfish, and not deserve His love, grace or mercy......but He gives it freely, because He loves me. He loves you. There is a song that echos this saying....'oh, how He loves you and me. oh how He loves you and me.' I don't really think about His love for me that often. But it's something that is true and very real. Praise God for His LOVE. I'm so blessed for the love of Jeremiah, the love of Charlie and the LOVE of my Father, Jesus Christ.
On a funny note, here is our Valentine sending his love on this day!
