Someone sent this to me in a e-mail the other day and it has touched my life in so many postive ways this week that I wanted to share it with all of you my dear friends!!
A friend sent an early Valentine to see if it would make it around the world by February 14th.
For God So LoVed the world,
That He gAve
His onLy
Believeth In Him
Should Not perish,
But have Everlasting life.
John 3:16
(The letters that I captalized spell out the word Valentine. )
Please send this around the world!!

Good Afternoon Mary,
I love that email. I received it as well. I may have even forwarded to you. LOL. I can' remember. I have been napping off and on all day. We had some heavy rain and fierce blowing winds here yesterday. We were without power for 11 hours. I have posted about it today on my today's post. I hope you are having a good week thus far. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

A verse everyone needs to memorize!
I'll never forget Jordyn when she was learning..."God FORGOT his only son!" She said it with such sadness and I had to explain the word BEGOTTEN...

Mary, I love your stories!

Also, I love this Valentine scripture, too. I actually did a formatted version to pass out to some ladies we did an outreach for. If you send me your email address, I can send you a .pdf (Acrobat Reader) copy.

Hugs, KJ
