Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and Happy Valentine's Day!  Leading up to today I was beginning to have some negative thoughts since there is not a "significant other" in my life.  But then I began to think what this day of love was all about.  All that came to mind was this verse: Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." After thinking about this verse, I realized that I needed to think about the greatest love of all and why we are capable to love others! God's love is unconditional and it surpasses all knowledge.  We can love others ONLY because God first loved us!  In this verse it says "while we were still sinners..."....God didn't send Jesus to die because of anything we did or just because we were good but ONLY because He loved us! Whenever you are uncertain about God's love for you, remember that He loved you even before you turned to Him! How wide, how long, how high, how deep is the love of Christ! Ephesians 3:18 - God's love is perfect!  May you think about this not just today but EVERYDAY!  "Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly that all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Thanks be to God! AMEN! (Eph. 3:20-21)
