Happy Valentine's Day! (Click to read the history of Valentine's Day.)
Flowers, chocolates, romantic dinners, diamonds! Bring them on! (My fave is just cuddling and taking a good walk together for some quiet talk time.)
But when we really think about this love thing, the simple focus is on the action word--the verb--LOVE. And it all began with our heavenly Father's action for us when He sent Jesus to be our Savior and Friend.
God's Word is filled with passages of love for our needing ears, hearts, and minds. Here are just a few of my favorites:
The Gospel in a nutshell: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
God is love ... We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:16,19
Love is patient, love is kind ... love rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres ... these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:4,7,13
My prayer is that you experience God's love and joy in Jesus in your life!
Love is in action as I write...my DH is busy making heart-shaped pancakes. YUM.
