My 1st Valentine

I have always loved Valentine's Day. And the thing is, if you are single, whether a single teenager or a single adult, you usually almost hate Valentine's Day. I remember I never had a boyfriend on Valentine's day until I met Russell. Which he was definitely worth the wait by the way! I would love going to our church's annual Valentine Banquet every year, then I always loved handing out valentine's to my friends and family too. Cards were my favorite thing for Vday! I even made a heart shaped pizza one year. I mean, like I said, I never felt sorry for myself whenever I was "alone" on Vday. I guess because I already knew who my very first Valentine was. My Daddy. This is a picture of us in 1993! When I met Russell, we loved celebrating the Valentine holiday together. We still do! :) Align Center

I do remember that Daddy usually liked to give Mama Russell Stover candy for Valentine's Day. It was something special he did every year. I loved watching my parents look into each other's eyes full of love for one another! But sometimes Daddy and Mama sent me roses for Valentine's day. I have always LOVED flowers. Especially a beautiful fresh bouquet of gorgeous fresh flowers! Oh my goodness!

Well, I just wanted to let all of you know if you are single and waiting for the one God has planned for you, don't give up hope! God has a special someone-a specific "valentine" waiting just for you. So keep the faith, keep praying! But also remember, God loves you! He is waiting for your heart. So let Him in your heart daily! Read your Bible every day. Keep connecting with the Lord and He will show you what to do in any situation!

I found the one my heart loves. Song of Songs 3:4
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
