Love is...

In honor of the month of February, I'm dedicating this post to "love". After having seen a short documentary on a singer/songwriter, John Mark McMillan at church last weekend, I've been thinking more about "what" and "who" I love and "how" I love them. First of all, I LOVE chocolate kisses, and chocolate/candy covered pretzels just like the next girl. That said, I've learned to LOVE to paint these and more otherwise fattening treats even more than their taste! Even so, that LOVE pales in comparison to the LOVE I feel for my daughter who helped me dip and decorate the pretzels for my sister's "Valentine's" birthday party, my son who sang to us as we celebrated her milestone, my husband who spent all day creating a delicious meal for the event, and all of my brothers and sisters, especially and including the "birthday girl"! This is a LOVE that I'm capable of, but there's an even greater love:

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