Enjoy Your Flowers & Love Letters

Mike has always made sure to make Valentines special. While I love jewelry and flowers, the love letters are the most precious. They remind me how much he cares. One day I realized that I get fresh flowers all the time. Not many days go by that I do not see some type of flower blooming like pansies and winter jasmine in the winter. Before long I will be seeing hyacinths, daffodils, daisies, tulips and azaleas followed by dogwoods, magnolias, hydrangeas, camellias and hibiscus. Even in the fall we have lavender, marigold, goldenrod and heather. God sends us flowers to enjoy His beautiful creations and for animals nourishment and shelter. We use some for cooking and some for medicinal purposes.


God also wrote us the ultimate love letter! Everything we need to know is in the Bible. John 3: 16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." God told us that He created us to be like Him and that we are very good! Genesis 1: 27, 31, "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. I created you in my image...."God saw all that he had made, and it was very good."


He knit each of us together in our mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13, "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb." He knows all about us. Psalm 139: 3, "You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways." He even knows the number of hairs on our head! Matthew 10: 30, "And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered." His precious thoughts of us are more than the grains of sand! Psalm 139: 17-18, "How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would out number the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you." We are so loved and cared for! Enjoy your flowers and love letter this Valentines and everyday! You are His beloved!
