True Love and Sunday's Music - Feb. 14

Sunday is February 14 - a day of love and romance

Hahaha! I thought this was rather funny. Over the years I have seen a lot of people get really messed up because of Valentine's Day. He didn't read her mind and get what she wanted or she bought him something romantic and he wanted a new set of hubcaps.

As a hopeless romantic myself, I've often said that Valentine's Day is for amateurs. Husbands and wives should do nice little romantic things for each other every day. A box of candy and some flowers one day a year don't make up for 364 other days (365 this year) of taking each other for granted. Oh, and by the way - chasing a rabbit here I suppose - the pajama-grams with the footies and hoddies are NOT what your husband wants to get you or see you in. At least not for Valentine's Day. And guys, it's OK for you to clean up a little for your wife like you used to do when you were dating.

Well, I guess that was a little free advice you weren't looking for...

True love between people is only possible when people know THE source of true love - God.

John 3:16 NASB
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."

1 John 4:10 NASB
"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

Romans 5:8 NASB

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
When we accept God's unconditional love for us we can then give that same unconditional love to others.

Here's Sunday's music.

Crown Him with Many Crowns
“Crown Him the Lord of love!
Behold His hands and side -
Rich wounds yet visible aboe,
In beauty glorified.
All hail, Redeemer, Hail!
For Thous hast died for me:
Thy praise and glory shall not fail
Throughout eternity."
