A ponderance for Valentines Day...

As I come to this blog, I am mindful of the nature of Valentine's Day in its celebration of love. We typically hold the day for romantic love, yet too is there not such beauty in all types of love? ... The affectionate love, the nurturing love of a parent, the romantic passionate love, the love of friendship, the altruistic love, and yes, that which is most powerful, unconditional love. ... Though many may have broken hearts on this Valentine's from lost love, loss of a love one, or just hurt, yet too many have joys and gratitude that permeate amidst all the loves. I pray all who may visit here may find the love in your heart and that which brings you most joy. ... For Valentine's Day is truly a day to celebrate the precious gift of God... Love.

I heard this poem on the radio and wished to share. .....

May your days and weekend, be filled with love:

A Valentine for Jesus

Jesus does not send perfume
To linger in the air
Instead He sends salvation, sweet
To show how much He cares.

He doesn’t bring me candy hearts
In boxes of delight
Instead He always lets me know
I’m precious in His sight.

He doesn’t pass out pretty cards
Trimmed in shades of red
Instead He gave His life for me
His precious blood was shed.

He doesn’t hand out fancy gifts
Like we would send to mother
Instead He sends a message clear
To always love each other.
He doesn’t give me teddy bears

That whimper, “please be mine”
Instead He gave His heart to me
I wear it all the time.

He doesn’t give me roses, pink
For all the world to see
Instead He gave eternal life
That’s beautiful to me...

  3. It's with a new sense of urgency and importance that I read your words:

    "live life to the fullest, love fervently, and to strive to make a positive difference"

    After my trip to Mexico, doing parasailing, swimming and soaking in the spiritual importance of the beautiful scenery, I now your words better than ever.

    Thanks again for your blog. I shared your Jesus poem with several of my Christian friends.
