THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL...LOVE--HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

"We love Him, because He first loved us." I John 4:19

 
Love....
Is from the heart
Of the Father
The giver of every
Good and perfect gift,
For love is
The greatest gift of all.

Love....
Has touched us
And brought us
Every meaningful thing
That is in our lives,
For love always gives
The BEST.

Love....
Will keep us
And nourish us
Enriching each day
Of our journey
For love is always growing
And will abide FOREVER!!



 

The greatest love story ever told can be found in God's Word...commonly called the "Gospel In A Nutshell", the scripture is found in the gospel of John 3:16..."For God so loved the WORLD..that He gave His only begotten SON..that WHOSOEVER believeth in Him .....SHOULD NOT perish.....but have EVERLASTING LIFE."

 
John 5:13.."Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."  This is exactly what Jesus Christ did for us...nearly 2,000 years ago..What a precious treasure He is for us today in this world of anger, hate, unrest, anxiousness, worry, and despair..He truly is the our true valentine.

 
Here's a song that I taught a children's group some years ago...
 
Jesus is my true Valentine
His heart was pierced for me
I cannot tell why He loved me so well
But He proved it on Calvary.

So what are you going to do this Valentine's Day??   

Buy some special candy...
 or FLOWERS
or maybe try out GEORGIA'S AWESOME FUDGE RECIPES.. Yummy...
Or just do a little smooching in the backseat of the car??


Remember, kids...all moms need this....and it doesn't cost a penny...

And it wouldn't hurt to help clean up the kitchen either, right?
 
Valentines Day just reminds us that we need to take time for each other....friends and loved ones alike...married or single.....
young or old....male or female...

an E-CARD..a note...a candy bar
 ....or anything.. That would make their day...And let them know how much you appreciate them.

GOD'S WORD ABOUT LOVE!
 
 
A friend loveth at ALL times..Proverbs 17:17
A new commandment I give unto you. That ye LOVE one another; as I have LOVED you, that ye also LOVE one another..John 13:34
Beloved, let us LOVE one another; for LOVE is of God; and everyone that LOVETH is born of God, and knoweth God. I John 4:7
Beloved, if God so LOVED us, we ought also to LOVE one another. I John 4:11
But I say unto you, LOVE your enemies..bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and PRAY for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. Matthew 5:44
Wow....that's a tall order...but believe me you CAN through Christ...and LOVE covers a multitude of sin...


THE GREATEST LOVE CHAPTER OF THE BIBLE

I Corinthians 13:3-7, 13

LOVE suffers long, and is kind; LOVE envys not, LOVE does not push itself forward, and is not proud;
Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, and is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth
It bears all thing, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things...
And now abides faith, hope, LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE!!!!
