What is love?

Love is...

#9...dangling red hearts

Love is~ #10...red roses to his love

Love is~ #11...valentine's from school

Love is~ #12...red masking tape roses made for his mama

Love is~ #13...reminders of what to do

Love is~ #14...red heart valentine's made at school displayed high above door frames

Love is~ #15...homemade valentine from his wife that sets on his bedside table

Love is~ #16...words that remind me to slow and see

Love is~ #17...roses from her daddy(the one who raised her)reminding her the true love of a father...a man

Not all love is red, I know.
It's right there already highlighted in my husband's Bible.

Do you see it right there in black and white? GOD IS LOVE. And I think it over, and yes, this love is red too. Blood red.

#18...this love hangs

#19...and His love is all around

So look and SEE and count the ways he loves...

Cheri, (I tried emailing you but couldn't find an email here. This is in response to your blog comment over at my place today.)

I have a dear friend who has no contact with her two daughters. She remarried and there was lots of chaos and drama. It didn’t help that she became a Christian and married a Christian – the kids bio-dad is not. So, where else do you think the kids want to live than with the ‘fun’ dad. No rules or boundaries there.

My friend cries every time I see her. It makes me so sad and well, mad too. I wish I could change things for her. I wish I could shake her daughters.

God promises us so much. I believe He will bring those girls around in time, when they’re older and wiser.

I know you’re circumstances may be nothing like this, but I have seen the pain my friend goes through. Hang in there. Grieve and then focus on the ministry at hand-your husband and children there. God will make all things new in time, His time.

Praying for you today friend. (Rev. 21:5)
