The Greatest Love

Best gift ever?

val card

My husband wrote an acrostic poem in my Valentine’s Day Card!

A few of the letters…

V – Very.  I am very thankful for you and your unconditional love.

E – Engage. I like engaging in conversation with you.

I – Inspiration.  Your faith is an inspiration to me.

E – Excited.  Excited about where God is taking and going to take us!

I (obviously) left out a few letters.  You don’t really want to read that mushiness, do you?;)

I am thankful for my Valentine today as there have been a few “not-so-happy” Valentine’s Days in our 14 years of marriage.  Reading my husband’s card and listening to his heart, reminds me that our love is a gift from the one who is love.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8

And while the love Steve and I share is much less than perfect, God’s love for us is perfect…unconditional…forever.

His story is the greatest love story of all.

1 John 4:7-12  Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

 God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.12 No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us.

As we celebrate Valentine’s Day today – and everyday – I pray you know He loves you.  He truly does.  I also pray you love one another for love is of God.

Happy Valentine’s Day!  (And if you’re curious why we celebrate this day, read about it here.  It’s interesting.)

    Thank you for the scriptures. God is the greatest Lover. So to all the single folks know that God is in your corner and He truly truly loves you. He is the perfect Lover.

  2. I loved this post Sarah. Isn’t God good? Even when we have had bad days or weeks, months or years in our marriage, He can redeem and restore. God Bless

    • Indeed, Angie! God can redeem and restore any person and any situation. He is good:). Thanks for the ecouraging words:)
