Happy V-Day, blog folk. Hope you're doing something romantic with someone to celebrate this day. If not, then do something to love yourself! This morning, I got valentined by Joel. Such a sweet sweet man.
Beautiful flowers to gaze at for the next few days! As I try to keep my kids from spilling it so they can play with the water (has already happened twice this morning, and it's only 9 AM.), I will admire the gorgeous colors and sweet smells. God is such an amazing artist to give us all of these colors to look at. I think he loves looking at beautiful things more than we do. While I was lookin at these this morning, I was reminded of the beauty of God's created earth, and then I had a thought. (yeah that happens sometimes, even with my mommy brain!) Not only did He make the flowers, the sunsets, the snow-capped mountains, the oranged winged butterflies, the meadows and everything else that is beautiful on the earth, He made US, who He also calls beautiful. His bride! I think He thinks we're even prettier than these flowers. Ask any father who has a daughter and he'll tell you that she is the most beautiful child he's ever seen. Pretty sure God thinks that about his sons and daughters too.
