Hearts, love poems, pretty cards trimmed in shades of red, cuddly teddy bears, chocolates and chubby cherubs with bows and arrows abound today—Valentine's Day. And roses everywhere. Exquisite red roses saying "I love you".
On Saturday my friend, Yvonne, shared her creativity and showed a group of church friends how to make felt roses.

What a morning of fun, love and fellowship we had as we pinned, laughed, snipped, chatted, sewed, laughed, made mistakes, chatted, drank tea, laughed some more, arranged petals, wielded the glue gun, chatted some more... well I'm sure you get the idea.

- Share your beauty
- Be a good bud
- Grow gracefully
- Spread sweetness
And today I wish I could shower God with a multitude of red roses to say "I love You". Not only has He given us the gift of roses in this world to enjoy, He has also given us the gift of His great love, shown in the ultimate gift of Jesus, His Son, Who died to give us forgiveness for our sins and the gift of eternal life. What an amazing gift to thank Him for this Valentine's Day.
