We love Valentine's Day...and have had so much fun sharing with others how much we love and appreciate them! You know, it always confuses me when people say they dislike Valentine's Day...I mean I guess I get it a little. They are sad because they don't have a "special valentine...romantic relationship ect." But, to me Valentine's Day is a holiday to share your love with all those you love and appreciate! We all have family and friends who we are thankful for...right!? Of course, it's not the only day we should show our love and appreciation but it sure is one special day to love on others!
We have enjoyed a week's worth of projects and valentine making! Bella and I have been learning about God's love for us and how special we are to him which ties in just perfectly to Valentine's Day!
We had lots of fun making special Valentine Cards for our family. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins!
Can you see the excitement in Bella's eyes about..."valntine day"?
I've enjoyed learning how to use my new sewing/embroidery machine...Valentine's Day was the perfect opportunity to practice appliques and monogramming! =) (I will have to do a post with some of my latest sewing projects! It's really easy to get out of control and sew...sew...sew! I figure I better enjoy it while I have the time now...cause newborns don't so much allow for time or energy to sew!) =)
The "Love Chapter" seems to come to mind as we celebrate Valentine's Day this week...
"Love is patient, love is kind, love does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, is not easily angered and keeps no records of wrongs, loves does delight in evil but rejoices in the truth, always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres...Love never fails!" I pray that as a family we show love to each other every day of the year...
