Aloha!
That word means much more on the islands of Hawaii than just "hello". It basically is the summation of all "well-wishes"...including

"I LOVE YOU!"

Oh, I know...everyone knows February is the month wholly dedicated to love stuff *_* Yes, a lot of folks just think it a big, silly scheme to get people to spend money on cards, flowers, & candies. So what exactly does LOVE mean to you?



After spending NUMEROUS Valentine's Days "wearing black" (as a single *_*), I know what...Whom...I need to focus on every Valentine's Day. He is truly is the dearest, most loving Friend you or I could ever claim. He loved us FIRST, while we were totally unlovable. He blesses us with so many wonderful "gifts". Just in case you haven't figured out Who He is, here is a great clue *_*

VALENTINE

*_*

A-HA! So love really is about GIVING, though perhaps not in the way we are taught (sending little, cutesie, rhyming Valentines with candies in them to people.) Take some time to do for others...to give of YOURSELF to others this Valentine's Day.



REMEMBER:
"God so loved the world that He GAVE..."
Remember others
...show them what TRUE love is! MANY need to come to know the Saviour personally. Share the true, the JOYFUL, reason behind this upcoming Valentine's Day Celebration *_*

Jesus Loves You

Jesus Love Me

Now of course, I do not wear black anymore...*_* I was GIVEN a special blessing from that precious first "Valentine", God, in November of '95...

DANIEL ROBERT SEEST

So, here's a little Valentine to you, dear husband of mine *_*

To My Husband...My Best Friend....

When friends say that we are unique,
I know that it is true --
You're so much more than just a spouse;
You've been my best friend, too.
The friend who shares my dearest dreams,
The feelings of my heart,
Who's never far away from me
Though we're oceans apart.
You make my days, my world, my life
So meaningful and new --
And that is why I'll always be
So much in love with you.

Love you, Honey!!!

God So Loved the World
From John 3:16 & 17

God so loved the world!
God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoso believeth, believeth in Him,
should not perish; should not perish but have everlasting life!
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world!
God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world,
But that the world through Him might be saved.

God so loved the world!
God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoso believeth, believeth in Him,
should not perish; should not perish but have everlasting life!
Everlasting life! Everlasting!
Everlasting life!
God so loved the world!
God so loved the world!
God so loved the world....

Prepared Hearts

"For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments." (Ezra 7:10)

It does not come naturally into our hearts to seek, obey, and then teach others the words of God as found in the Scriptures. Therefore, like Ezra, we must prepare our hearts.

The Hebrew word for "prepare" means to "stand erect," and thus takes special effort. One's natural "heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked" (Jeremiah 17:9) not at all inclined to "stand up" for the word of God.

But Ezra did, even in the court of a pagan king and in the midst of the enemies of God's people in a far country, and even among the backslidden people of his own nation. He "prepared his heart", fixing it in firm faith on the laws and promises of God. And, because he did, he could testify: "I was strengthened as the hand of the LORD my God was upon me" (Ezra 7:28).

On the other hand we read, for example, of King Rehoboam whose rebellion and sin led to the dividing of Israel into two kingdoms and eventually into the captivity. These judgments came because, unlike Ezra, Rehoboam "did evil, because he prepared not his heart to seek the LORD" (II Chronicles 12:14).

Thus, our hearts need to be prepared to seek God and His Word, but how do we prepare them? First, we must come to the LORD in true humility. "LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear" (Psalm 10:17).

God is then the One Who actually prepares our hearts! "The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD" (Proverbs 16:1). We can only prepare our hearts to seek and serve God if we humbly call on Him to do the preparing.

Country Hearts

Collards is green, and tractors is, too;
And I'm more'n blessed to have a hubby like you.

Yer hair's like mown grass a-movin' in the breeze,
Softer than the cat's and without all them fleas.

You sang like the birds which excite me in May.
You ain't got no wangs, but yer cute anyway.

Yore pleasin' as okry a-fry'n on the far.
Yore fragrant as Folgers right outta the jar.

You have some'a yore teeth, for which I am proud;
Makes me hold my head high when we're out in a crowd.

On special occasions when you do'drunt yer arms
Well, I'm in hawg heaven and awed by yore charms.

Still them girls at the church, they think I've all the luck.
How did I ever ketch such a handsome young buck?

I'll stand by my man! Oh, yeah, this one's a keeper.
I call him by hollerin'. We don't need cell nor beeper.

Like a good roll of duct tape, yer there fer yer wife;
Fer one o' my birthdays, you done got me a knife!

Yore gentle as a butterfly we caught in a jar.
You ain't mean like them far ants what took over the yard.

When you hug me real tight like a 18 hour girdle,
My life is complete; I can clear any hurdle.

Me 'n' you's like bald peanuts with RC cold drank,
We go together like a skunk goes with stank.

Some men, they buy chocolate for Valentines Day;
In fancy heart boxes, it's romantic that way.

Some men buy gals roses on that special day
From the cooler at Walmart. "That's impressive," I say.

Some men buy fine diamonds from a flea market booth.
"Diamonds iz ferever," they explain, suave and couth.

But from my man, Honey, that old junk just won't do.
You spoil me rotten, you sweet thang you.

So fer you, I want somethin'...a gift with real taste.
But yer fav'rite things tend to go to yer waist!

So I got you somethin' that's a real come-true dream:
More useful than diamonds...yer own tub of sour cream!
