Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day Everyone! Today is one of my favorite days of the year. This picture of my man and I was taken last night at a 30th anniversary surprise celebration for our Pastor and his wife. Yes, that is an unbrella in my hair - you had to be there!

I wrote a Valentines Day poem a few years back and wanted to share that today as well. We are the apple of God's eye and Jesus is our valentine gift to us from God. Blessings! ~Jodie

Reflections From A Heart

What can we say about a day?
That sets apart celebrations from the heart?

As we watch and play,
People say, "I love you" this day.
Love notes, flowers, chocolates and gifts
Are people amiss?

For you see this thing called Love
Is sent to us from our Heavenly Father above.
Sent so we can truly know
A Fathers Love - not woe.

For a heart beats - not just because -
Created with a purpose that was
Fearfully and wonderfully formed from His glove,
It's a masterpiece of perfection - a masterpiece of His love.

Physical or spiritual - only God knows our heart,
Is it chained, lonely, sad - at the end of its' rope?
Is it unchained and free - singing songs of hope?

It's our spiritual heart that desires - longs to be filled,
As we search, seek and find - we are now stilled.
It's not the things of this world that quench our innermost thirst,
But trust, hope and faith work with putting Him first.

So trust in the Lord with all of your heart,
Lean not on your own understanding, will be a good start.
In all of your ways acknowledge Him,
and the light of the Lord will not be dim.

You see my friend God wants you to truly know,
You are God's valentine - a masterpiece from His heart
Love sent from God, never to depart.

So what can we say about Valentines Day?
It's a day of celebrations - hearts happy and gay.
Filled with red Roses and Violets of blue,
It's a day of the heart that says, "I love you".
