Valentine’s Every Day

I’m one of those weird people that isn’t that crazy about Valentine’s Day…it’s kind of like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, etc., etc., etc.  I realize it keeps those who work for greeting card companies, florists and jewelry stores employed and that’s a good thing.  But love, parents, grandparents and the like are supposed to be practiced, appreciated and celebrated every day {kind of like Christmas & Easter/Passover}. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a bah-hum-luv-bug post I’m just keeping it real.  To prove it, here’s the Facebook Cover I designed for my Facebook profile (feel free to take it for yourself if you like)…

…and tonight we’re having Crock Pot Lasagna {because it was one of the top 3 meals my very picky daughter says she likes} and a heart shaped version of this Milk Chocolate Layer Cake. My family knows I love them because I try to show them every day, but they will feel a little more special tonight.

So, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY everyone…may it last all year!

God Is Love

7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.9 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.17 By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world.18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.19 We love because he first loved us.20 If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.

  1. You are so right my sweet Lisa! Everyday should be filled with love..and we should share it so much more than we do!
    I was thinking about this yesterday…we use such a small part of our brain…and it is capable of so much more than we use it for. And our hearts are capable of loving so much more than we do now! Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all just opened up our hearts and loved people more?!!!! It could change the world!

    I was just telling dad today that we haven’t had lasagna for awhile! Maybe I should make some today….cuz it sounds good. I am glad…and surprised that Miss Bailey likes it….cuz she usually doesn’t like saucy things.
    And I’ll bet that chocolate layered cake was wonderful too. (You are such a good cook!)

    I am missing you. Have I seen you since we exchanged your Christmas gifts that day? I don’t think so. We need to get together my girl!

    Love you,
    Momma
