Happy Valentine’s Day

by sandihester

He has taken me to the banquet hall, and His banner over me is love.  Song of Songs 2:4

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

For Valentine’s Day I thought I would post a couple of “love” scriptures for you.  I pray these will sink in deep today, for you are dearly loved.  Grady and I are deeply in love – the Lord has truly blessed our marriage, but today during my quiet time after thanking the Lord for this great marriage He has blessed us with, I sat and thought on the love Christ has for me.  It is a love stronger, deeper, wider, and longer than any earthly love we could ever know.  Would we look up today and see the banner that has been firmly set over our us – it’s not a banner of shame, or disappointment, or condemnation – but a banner of love.  Let Him take you to the banquet hall today and allow you to see the banner He has placed tenderly, lovingly, and sacrificially for you.

This is a Valentine card I painted for my Mom.
