I love holidays, as do a lot of people. I stopped by the store on the way home this morning from work and got my 5 Valentines flowers. Little did I know when I got home, I would have an even bigger surprise waiting for me. I presented my 4 kids with bright orange gerber daisies and presented my husband with a red rose. Cliche maybe, but endearing none the less. However, the rest of my family was much more creative than I. I had pink tulips, homemade cards, pictures, a balloon, and a PowerPoint presentation. A PowerPoint presentation you say? Yes. A very unique, unusual, and extremely creative gift from the heart. Of course, being an emotional person, I’m crying through the whole song/slide show. The last slide said, “Don’t forget who also loves you…” and up came a picture of Jesus. Words honestly can’t express how I felt at that moment. My kids got it. My husband got it. I got it. The true meaning of all of this. Love from our Lord who allows us to freely love. I am still in awe of my kids. I am blessed beyond belief. God is truly good.
Happy Saint Valentine’s Day to all. May the love of God touch you each and bring you comfort. God Bless.
