I didn't post yesterday for St. Valentine's Day.
I joked with my friends that it was "Single's Awareness Day!"
I did get up and worshiped (even made it to sunday school) at Logos Baptist Church. Starting my day in worship and singing lifted my spirits and got me through a day I thought would be the pits. I started my day feeling love and shared some love and spent the day with my loved ones. We even traded valentines. I got the most beautiful touching heartfelt cards, the traditional heart shaped box of chocolates,jewelry, and even a stuffed bear. It was a completely mushy day. I had a renewed sense of how strong love is, and how love can grow. I really had a blessed day.
I know this month repeatedly 1 Corinthians 13 has been ever present.
And so this day after the "love" day I will share with you my hope that I got from this verse...
"So these three things continue forever: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:13
I know the love of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love that God gives through mercy, and I was very blessed.
Loving others like we want to be loved has wonderful rewards.
"It doesn't take great wisdom to energize a person, but it does take sixty seconds. That's the amount of time it takes to walk over and gently hold someone we love." - Gary Smalley
