Happy Valentine's Day sweet friend! Here's a gift just for you! A gift, not from me but from the One who is passionately head over heels for you. The One who thinks about you more times than grains of sand on the seashore. The One who is committed to your good. The One who will never leave you or forsake you. The One who knows everything about you and still deeply loves you with a love you will never come to the end of understanding. Here is a gift from Him. He is thinking about you today friend.
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day if you have a loved one. But even if you do, people fail us and don't always measure up to our hopes of how they would love us. (Remember this post about my reality marriage. Oh how I laugh reading it again.)
Or maybe you've just gone through a divorce or lost your husband or don't have a boyfriend, let alone husband. In those cases, this day can be torturous.
But no matter your season, remember the King is enthralled with your beauty and He is thinking about you today and looking for ways to give you good things. Mind blowing.
As far as the Featured Posts of the Week I am so sorry I can't do it this week. My husband was out of town much of the week which meant I didn't have the time to get what I needed to done. I'm sorry and ask for your grace. I will pick up with it next week!!

We exist to glorify God, to display His heart and character. And I just love how we are all uniquely built to do that. So every Friday I want to give you, uniquely designed by God, an opportunity to link up your thoughts on God, art, baking, photography, parenting, marriage, homeschooling, writing or blogging and more if they tie into or display the the Lord somehow.
So go ahead and link up below by clicking the link below and following the prompts. Please just let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your post (or somewhere on your side bar) or put my button code (found below and on the side bar) so they can find these other great people glorifying God and we can continue to grow as a community.Thanks!
And in effort to encourage others in their writing by faith, please take a minute to comment on another sweet lady's post.

". . . the king is enthralled with you . . ." Great quote, Laura - and one I clung to fourteen years ago when I weathered the dark valley of divorce. Ten years ago, the Lord gave me a new marriage filled with so many more blessings. He IS faithful! A worthy Valentine, indeed.

Having an advocate - "committed to my good" - that is powerful. Everyone needs to feel that and He is that! Thank you for your message. Wishing you blessing this day that celebrates love!

It's much better to find true love in Christ, to make ourselves presentable to Him first.
