Blessings to you, dear woman of Truth.  I am working through a thought currently, but I did want to say that today in the U.S. folks are celebrating Valentine's Day. It gets a little crazy with all the red hearts, excessive flowers, love songs on the radio, romantic comedy movies and love stories on the television and countless commercials on the television advertising products with the strong influence of love, romance and intimacy. I'm not too excited about the craziness, but it is here and I live surrounded by it's influence. So, I am needing to be daily renewed in my thinking. And the Almighty God is the One to help me be renewed in my mind and heart.  His Word helps so much with that.

Lately, I have been thinking strongly about how we focus so much on things that don't last very long.  We don't look long term into things as often as we look at quick fixes, temporary satisfaction.  If we do look in the long term things, they are usually stressful things.  So many times, we forget about the long term....positive long term things in this life.  God is loving us long term.  We get all of the short term blessings throughout each day ONLY because God is loving us long term.  Every good and perfect gift is from God.
James 1:17
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."

So, this is just a loving reminder this Valentine's Day to look for ways God is loving you today.  Acknowledge them out loud to others around you and in your heart.  Keep your eyes wide open for signs of how much God loves mankind. Let us love Him deeply today and everyday because He is and has and will always be loving us long term.......on the good days and the bad days.

When I find free time this afternoon, I will be posting another blog on this thought.  Stay tuned. haha!!  Blessings to you!!
