Did you know we have a Valentine from God? I’ve posted this before, but feel it bears repeating for those who may have missed it.
As the only female in our household, I take a lot of teasing when it comes to watching romantic or inspirational movies. What I call moving, my husband and sons call sappy! While I’m gearing up for a good cry, they’re snickering and staring, wondering why I’m puddling up.
THE POWER OF LOVE
Guys just don’t get how we women can get so caught up in the emotions of a scene. “It’s just a movie, Mom. It’s not real,” my oldest son reminds me time and again when something tugs at my heart. Yet a good flick can pool me up quicker than slicing an onion…even if I’ve seen it dozens of times!
What is it about movies that touches our souls and moves us to tears? It’s the power of love. Whether it’s the love between a boy and his dog, a mother and her child, or two star-crossed sweethearts who’ve been torn apart, a good story can reach into the depths of our beings and draw us into the characters’ lives.
THE AMAZING LOVE OF CHRIST
Yet, nothing touches my heart like the amazing love of Christ. No greater love story has ever been written than that of Jesus coming to earth and giving His all for us. God sent us the greatest Valentine anyone could ever give–redemption through His Son.
A magnet on our refrigerator bears the most memorable Valentine message ever sent…a Valentine from God.
John 3:16 shares the full measure of God’s love for us. Jesus bore our sins to give us a way back to God. No greater love story could ever be told.
As you celebrate Valentine’s Day, take a moment to thank Jesus for His awesome gift of love and salvation.

Beautiful Cynthia! I love Valentine’s Day and I love how your post ties it in with God’s love for us!
Thanks, Laurie. So glad you stopped by to read it. God bless you, friend!
That valentine is still wonderful. You can show it to us every year.
I can understand your emotions and the comments your males give. I have a family of left brainers. Even my daughters tell me.” Mother, it’s just a novel. It’s not true.” My husband will tell me to stop reading a book if it makes me cry.
Ah! Thanks, Bonnie! LOL! How funny! Glad you understand. =) They just don’t get the feels, do they?
