Happy Valentine's Day

Good morning Folks ~ here it is another Valentine's Day. Today is a day that celebrates love in a big way. Let us remember that love can be shown on any given day, not just on a designated day. Everyone needs love, always.

I wanted to share 'hearts' that I've been blessed with, given to me by God. My dear husband used to give me hearts he found, bought, or made, but the last one from him was in 2012. These hearts from God are pleasant surprises that make me smile and say 'thank you'. He lets me know I am loved, even though my dear husband is with Him and can no longer let me know he loves me. God loves me.

These hearts are from this year.

The first one was on my breakfast plate. I had reheated refried beans with ground beef, topped with a fried egg. I cut up the egg and when I got ready to eat, lo and behold there was a piece of egg white in a heart shape.

 'Angel Face' fallen rose petals.

I saved the petal and taped it into my journal.


This heart is made up of begonia petals.


Yesterday I went grocery shopping and wanted something to celebrate 'love'. I can still celebrate even when by myself. This is a vanilla cake with buttercream frosting from the grocery bakery dept.


For Valentine's Day the pastors at my church take the widows out to lunch at the Olive Garden. We have a good time and it's a real treat celebrating love with church family. I am blessed. I am looking forward to our lunch today, after our ladies weekly time of Bible study and prayer.

That's it for now. Do take time to celebrate love in your life, past and present.

Feel the love of our Creator God surrounding you.

Lorraine, what a wonderful post. I loved seeing all the hearts that came around in your every day life. I especially like the rose petals. And that vanilla cake with buttercream frosting - it looks amazing! So nice of the pastors to take you all out for lunch, and Olive Garden is always a treat. Such delicious food. Keep celebrating love, Lorraine. Yes, I feel God's love all the time. : )
