Today, I am thankful for my "hearts" and the loves of my life - Barry, Elle and Annie - the people in my life who make every day special!
My two favorite passages from the Bible on LOVE:
"For God so LOVED the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life"
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. 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. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.........1 Corinthians 13
Let me tell you about my "happy hearts" in the picture! Those beautiful hand cut designs were created by my dear friend, Katie, when she was about 4 years old! I always treasured these sweet Valentine's that Katie made especially for me and eventually had them framed. Every year, when I get them out I smile remembering this sweet heart who gave them to me!
Fast forward to 2013 and Katie is winning awards for her graphic designs! Should have known! I am honored to own some of her early designs!
So proud of my sweet friend and fellow redhead! Way to go, Katie!
