LOVE & VALENTINE'S



Oh sweet Valentine's Day with your Hallmark cards, Chocolates, and Flowers!  Heart-shapes, Cupids, and Doves!  Kisses, Embraces, and Love!  How I adore you!


~ Perfectly Timed ~


Wikipedia describes Valentine's Day as an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions


I'm on Week 3 of my bible study and it's titled Greatest of These is Love.  What a great thing to have both Valentine's day and this week of Bible Study devoted to love.  I'll be studying Eros: Grasping Love, Philos: Friend Love, Agape: Caring Love and Agape in Action.  The study starts off with these thought provoking words;
We talk about it. We sing about it. We praise it. We seek it, and we long for it. Love. "The fruit of the Spirit is love"  God's kind of love is foreign to us.  How can we love the unlovely-not endure them, but love them? How can we genuinely desire the best, not for ourselves or our friends, but for our enemies?  Love challenges us. It frightens us, and it embraces us.  Ultimately only love can change us so that we become people who love.


Brandon and I deeply love one another. The greatest evidence of this is love is our son.  I think that Brandon and I needed seven years of marriage and sharing our love, for one another, before having Tanner to understand the awesomeness of watching love exist outside of ourselves.   To feed that love, nurture that love and let that love change us is what we've been waiting for our whole lives!  Love will always be growing and maturing and I'm so thankful for that!
~LOVE~
