I have to say that is totally true! When you love someone or something you have no fear of it! As Valentine's approaches- may you Love without Fear!
Over the past 30 years or so the word Love has been tossed about as if it is a toy that can be used and then tossed away. Around here we teach the word Love is a strong feeling, not something that is going to go away tomorrow. We want our kids to understand the meaning of Love. I guess that is partly why we chose to allow them to join us on our celebration of 15 years of marriage! Some of you are saying- 'What?'
Yes- we took them with us to celebrate our Anniversary- at least for part of the night! Our kids are always so excited when we go through downtown San Antonio and watch for the blinking light of the elevator taking people to the deck of the Tower of the Americas! We decided it would be a treat for hubby and I as we have both been there- but never together- and the kids would love it too! If you have never heard of this Tower it is unique in that the outer dining area is encased in glass and rotates a full turn in 60 minutes. We enjoyed it close to Christmas as we could see lights all throughout parts of San Antonio!
For all of you that have encouraged and supported us in our relationship over the years- Thank You!
Love is patient, Love is Kind, Love does not envy or boast, It is not rude or self seeking, It is not easily angered, It keeps no record of wrongs (a personal favorite of mine), Love does not delight in evil (great to explain to siblings...), Love rejoices in truth (great to teach kids), It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always endures, Love never Fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
If you haven't heard of the book of 1 Corinthians just comment on this with your email- I' ll be glad to let you know where you can find it!
So as we come upon Valentine's I hope you delight in Love and have no fear of it. Whatever that may be in your life right now. Some people have different things to celebrate their love for; their church, their job, their spouse, their parents, their kids, their friends, their things that matter. The things that you truly feel as though if you lost them you could not live- That is when you know you Love something!
Around here- we will be spending the day as a family, that is what matters to us! WE give Thanks to God for his never ending Love!
