Spread Some Love Today and Everyday

Cats, Flowers and Valentine’s Day!

reminder-product-02

Recently I got an email reminder to send flowers for Valentines day so I thought I would do that — virtually!  Aren’t they lovely.  I’ve always loved flowers and just for the record, so do my cats.

In fact so much so that I usually keep them in the sink so that when (not if) Peaches pulls at the flowers and they fall over, I can fix them rather easily.

Yes, you learn these things after a few occurrences!

True to form. Here she goes for the flowers. Good thing I’m a trained cat parent and the flowers are in the sink!

Guarding the flowers -- notice the ears!  And you thought they were yours...

Guarding the flowers — notice the ears!

So send some flowers, share some love and have a Happy Valentine’s Day —

Oh yes, and don’t forget to pet the cat!

Charity or Love? Happy Valentines Day!

May the Lord fill your heart with His love and meet your every need in the special way that only He can!

May I bring a smile to your face as you remember times we have shared together.

May you always know that you are special to the One who made you and the friends who know you!

May you serve Him all the days of your life and enter into His presence with great rejoicing~

I Corinthinans 13 is sometimes known as the Love Chapter.  May I suggest you read it with the word charity and then read it with the word love.  Ponder which word is more powerful and why.  It is worth a conversation with your loved ones and might even change the way we treat one another if we begin to understand what is contained in the concept of sacrificial love — the kind of love that caused our Creator to offer Himself on our behalf to restore us and make us ‘whole’.  That my friends is true love!

1 Corinthians 13 (KJV)

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,  Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;  Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.  But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.  When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.  And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
