Happy Valentine's Day

Today is a day devoted to LOVE, Love, love... because Hallmark wants to sell a card or two. But still, I like the day. I like thinking of love and I like to feel love and give love and also it is our 27th wedding anniversary. That makes this day pretty darn special, I think.

My hubby made me this. Isn't it cute? It was yummy too! We split it. Is this LOVE? Is love sharing cookies? Really now, what do you think love is? Tell me. How have you seen it or felt it or given it? Is it only a sentimental idea or feeling or is real, really real? The ultimate real? I think on these things. Do you?

We've heard these words a lot:
Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest of these is LOVE and Love is patient, love is kind, love bears all things and believes all things and hopes all things and endures...endures all things and always rejoices in truth and it never ever fails and also God is love.

But really does ask a lot and it is a lot that I am not. And yet, how it calls, it beckons; it seems to me to be the highest aspiration, the greatest goal. Do you too strive to see and give love, to know love? I do. I do. I do. Because love changes lives, love restores. Love is true restoration.

Happy Anniversary Honey, I love you.

P.S. this great photo and our profile pic too was taken by our amazingly talented, superstar friend Chinua. Check out his work at: Photography, Videos


  1. I totally forgot your anniversary is on Valentine's Day. How sweet.

    I don't know all of what love is but I'm understanding really is doing what's best for someone even if it's extremely painful while you're doing it.

  2. How true. Yea. Thanks for the input.

  3. Happy Anniversary!! 27 years! Wow. About love, I'm really trying to figure out how to get the realization that I am loved by God deep deep inside me. And have it stay there. It's not very easy.

  4. Really KNOWING that we are loved, and having that truth stay at our core, are treasures worth the seeking. Also, embracing that we are made this way, leaky vessels unsuitable for storage, desiring only to be filled, designed for overflowing like a gardening can. mark

  5. I LOVE LOVE this post! It is so precious. I seriosly got chills at the final picture. I sure hope you have a very large copy of that framed in your house.

    Happy anniversary!

    Love, Max and Michelle

  6. This fall a friend came out and did this whole photo shoot. It was fun. A little odd, but fun. We have so many great photos of us together it is very hard to pick one to enlarge, so we haven't yet. I too, really like this one. Being back lit makes it really special.


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
