I just have to leave a comment, Hope you don't mind. I found you blog while surfing the web, and it is such a treat to find a blog of someone that loves my Father and expresses it like yo do. (I think we have the same Father which would make us sisters. :-) I hope i can find your blog again, I don't know how to subscribe to your site and since I belong to xanga? I'm learning though, by the time I'm 103 I'll know all aobut it. (which is only 38 years away, It will be here before you know it. :-)

Such a beautiful list!

I've mentioned before that Kev's birthday has always taken precedence over Valentine's Day. I usually end up getting him his favorite candy, Russell Stover's. Nothing creative or expensive here, I'm afraid!

Thank you for this.

I can't remember where I had seen this before but really enjoyed reading His love letter again! Very sweet and very encouraging, especially when you put all the verses in this format! lol God asks so little of us and yet, wants the world for us!

What a perfect post for around Valentines Day! :)

These are wonderful verses. I am going to copy them and hang them in my room so I can look at them every day as a reminder to our Father's love.

That's a wonderful list of verses. I read that and chastise myself for worrying about anything - how could I when my Father is watching over me? Thank you.
