Happy Valentine's Day, Friends!



 Charity suffereth long, and is kind;
charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,


Doth not behave itself unseemly,
seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;


Rejoiceth not in iniquity,
but rejoiceth in truth;


Beareth all things,
believeth all things,
hopeth all things,
endureth all things.


Charity never faileth...
1 Corinthians 13:4 - 8a



I hope all of you have a lovely Valentine's Day with your loved ones.
Do you have any special plans?

My wonderful husband brought home these beautiful red roses.
And he and my son gave me some Ghirardelli chocolate squares.
Roses and  Ghirardelli chocolates - my 2 weaknesses! :)

I am enjoying the sweetness from the guys in my life
and I will be enjoying the sweetness of my gifts.

Happy Valentine's Day!

"Beloved, if God so loved us,
we ought to love one another."
1 John 4:11

My Love surprised me with Valentines on Monday since we were at the hospital today. I came home from a long day to find Daisy's on the table, Dr Pepper in the fridge, Snickers on my bedside table and hearts of Hershey's kisses on my bed. Many of my favorite things all at the same time and a complete surprise- I was very happy! I have the best husband. Today was also a joy because we got to bring Kayli home and all 4 of us were back together again as a family in our own home. God is Good all the time~
