It's that time of year again to be thinking about all the people we love in our lives. February 14th is quickly approaching. Some people we might want to give special cards or gifts to on Valentine's Day. Others just need a big hug or comforting words to get them through a tough day. Either way, I hope that you will be showering people with love all around you this Valentine's Day. Actually, we are called to love others every day, not just on Valentine's. Our small group Bible study is going through a book called One Month to Live by Kerry and Chris Shook. This book is built on the premise of....what if you found out you only had one month to life. How would you live differently? What would you say to your neighbor today if you knew you were going to die tomorrow? Why wait till you know you are are going to die to say it or do it? And, quite frankly, most of us will never know when we are going to die...so we should live as if this will be our last day. Live to the fullest. Love those around you. Say what is in your heart of hearts to say to people that might change their lives! Love, love, love.......
A friend of mine ordered a few Valentine's Day cards for some special friends and sweet little girls in her life. These are the cards I made for her. I hope she likes them and I hope the recipients will feel her arms around them as they open their cards. No card details in today's note....I mostly just wanted to share from the heart.
" There's so much of life that is completely out of our control, but there is one thing that we do get to control. There is one thing that we do get to choose. We get to choose how to spend the dash between the two dates on our tombstones."--Kerry Shook
Choose to show love and kindness to those around you!
