Happy Valentine!


When I was young as this beauty we didn't celebrate Valentine ’s Day.  But I am sure we still had the same sentiments.  Romance, dreams of happy forever, hopes for the future.  Over the years the dreams do get knocked about a bit, but love is forever. \

1 Corinthians, Chapter 13. Says it all
 What if I could speak all languages of humans and of angels? If I did not love others, I would be nothing more than a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 
  
What if I could prophesy and understand all secrets and all knowledge? And what if I had faith that moved mountains? I would be nothing, unless I loved others. 

What if I gave away all that I owned and let myself be burned alive? I would gain nothing, unless I loved others. 
  
Love is kind and patient, never jealous, boastful, proud, or 
 rude. Love isn't selfish or quick tempered. It doesn't keep a record of wrongs that others do. 

 Love rejoices in the truth, but not in evil. 
  
Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful, and trusting. 

 Love never fails! Everyone who prophesies will stop, and unknown languages will no longer be spoken. All that we know will be forgotten. 

We don't know everything, and our prophecies are not complete. 

 But what is perfect will someday appear, and what isn't perfect will then disappear. 
  
When we were children, we thought and reasoned as children do. But when we grew up, we quit our childish ways. 

Now all we can see of God is like a cloudy picture in a mirror. Later we will see him face to face. We don't know everything, but then we will, just as God completely understands us. 


 For now there are faith, hope, and love. But of these three, the greatest is love. 

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week.

  5. Beautiful artwork and scripture, Sharon. We exchanged valentines from first grade through 8th where I went to school. In a way it wasn't really all that nice because some kids didn't get but a couple while the popular kids got 30 or so.
