Happy Valentine's Day to You~

Valentine's Day is really just a day and I won't go into the origins of it. Today I just wanted to send God's love your way. The Bible tells us so much about love and that God is the author of love. And how this love should be shared with others not just on a day - but everyday. People read many times and often talk about the verses in Corinthians; though we may forget what it says some times.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

Love is patient,
Love is kind,
Is not jealous;
Love does not brag,
Is not arrogant,
Does not act unbecomingly,
It does not seek its own,
Is not provoked,
Does not take into account a wrong suffered,
Does not rejoice in unrighteousness,
But rejoices with the truth;
Bears all things,
Believes all things,
Hopes all things,
Endures all things.

Love never fails. . .

Have you read this it's about:
God's Love and Ours~
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother. 1John 4:7-21
Some things just can't be said or written any better.
