Valentine’s Day isn’t a huge occasion in our house… but we do try to stop and celebrate LOVE. It is one more chance for us to stop and intentionally teach our girls about life’s greatest gift. Love.

I’m smitten with Mark for a million and one reasons – but one is because he shows our girls an awesome example of how they should be treated by the boys in their life. They woke up to cards he had chosen for them specifically, and inside he had written what he loves about each girl. And they had flowers from him. They were so excited to have flowers they could keep and grow. Here’s hoping they do a better job than I do at growing things!

I’m surprised, and pleased, but our girls still ask for homemade Valentine’s cards for school. So, off we went to pinterest (love it) for ideas and the girls chose this idea – turned out cute!

Our girls have been working on memorizing 1 Corinthians 13 and so we chatted about how this is true love versus “I-love-Taco-Bell” type of love. I leave you with these words… whoever it is in your life today, may you shower them with love!

Love is patient,
love is kind.
It does not envy,
it does not boast,
it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
always trusts,
always hopes,
always perseveres.
Love never fails.

Celebrating life and LOVE,
