Love

As I sent the kids off to school this morning, with the girls dressed in pink and 3 of the 4 looking forward to Valentine parties. I started to think about Valentine's Day and love. When you think about love the first thing that comes to mind is the ultimate love:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

When I went to BibleGateway.com and looked up "love", love is mentioned 697 times in the Bible. Wow, God really must want us to know that we are loved.

So with tomorrow being Valentine's Day remember that you are loved. That is better than chocolates or a fancy dinner. God loves you!!
