Heart shaped donuts, berries, feather boas, Minney and Mickey, massages, crinkly pink paper, and colorful gift bags! This morning, we embraced the aura of love that permeates February 14th, especially since Addie and I spent this date last year without our Valentine. One year ago Tim had just landed in Afghanistan for his nine month deployment. Praise God, we get to spend this one in the same country, knowing he's safe! I understand why many people think it's a silly, commercialized holiday, but I enjoy the fun of it and embrace the excuse to celebrate my love for Tim and our Sweet Adeline.
May your day be filled with love, hope, and joy. But above all, I pray you experience the love of a Christ, the truest most eternal love of all ! Happy Valentines Day, from our family to yours.
