Valentine Hugs...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love is in the air. A day to celebrate the relationships you have in your life. A day of small tokens of love to be given and remembered. A day to feel very blessed and be thankful for love shared. A day of picture moments that turn into hugs for the soul to cherish always.


Here are a few of my Valentine hugs...



The keeper and protector of my heart...




The "baby doll" that made me understand what unconditional "mommy love" really was, with her first heard heartbeat...






My little man who stole a piece of my heart, with his first cry...





Flowers of beauty. Not only my favorite color, but were bought from a church to raise money for a mission trip to Ecuador. I get to enjoy their beauty now, while others this summer will hear the beautiful sound of my Savior's name for the first time.



The aroma of a warm apple pie, made for me by a loving lady, my mom-in-law. Yummy... Beats candy! Although we all got plenty of that too!!!





Sweet notes of love made with a "sincere" young heart... definitely one of my favorite things!!!
(Only don't say anything to him about it, for all this mushy stuff embarrasses him to no end!!!)




The lesson theme I taught my Kindergartners in Sunday School today. A lesson I need to hear over and over myself...




The fact that Valentine's Day is on Sunday this year means so much. Celebrating the greatest love of all...
(Noted, underlined and emphasized!!!)

Here's wishing you, my friends, a Happy Valentine's Day filled with your own picture moments and lots and lots of hugs...


Blessings...

Pass me some pie and a slice of some Jesus are we're good to go for another day! May the love of Christ rule in your heart this week as you seek to bring your "single things" alongside mine in conjunction for the kingdom!

Mich,

I couldn't picture a better day for Valentine's day to fall on this year either than a Sunday. Even though I was sick and in bed, I still loved being close to God in my own way!

I love how you created this post! How is the book going, by the way, real moms, real Jesus?
