As much as I enjoyed spending the day with my hubby and kids for Valentine's Day, it was even more special that it fell on Sunday. The one day we get to devote totally and completely to our first love.... our Lord. My hubby gave me a card and some chocolate (as well as the kids), took me to church, out to eat lunch and then we spent the afternoon at home. Me taking a nap and him watching cars drive in circles. (I'm a Daytona 500 widow....) Although I can't be totally sure he wasn't taking a little cat nap of his own while I was dozing on the couch. He tends to do that on Sundays too! lol ♥
Plus, I'd like to point out that today is Chinese New Year too! Having a new little China doll in our lives is opening up our minds to many new things these days. We made Jia some 'special' valentine's to share with her friends and family. Hope you enjoy!
This poem was shared at church this morning and I just wanted to share it here. I hope everyone had a special day with someone they love. If it wasn't a sweetheart I bet you have friends or children you shared it with. All that matters is that it was spent with people you love and that love you! Sending all my friends, both at home and in blog land virtual hugs and kisses!!!!
Valentine's Day with 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 good enough for me.
