Happy Valentine's Day!

Commercials make February 14 seem so wonderful, so romantic, so perfect. Unfortunately, there are so many people who are lonely and struggling on this day of love. Here's a Valentine's Day twist for your family to try this year.

Make or buy (or a combination of both) lots of Valentine's Day cards to send out. Here are some great LOVE Bible verses that you can include in the cards:

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

1 John 3:1 — How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!

1 John 3:16 — This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.

1 John 4: 7 — Dear friends, let us love one another for love comes from God.

The next step is to decide to whom to send all these LOVE cards. Look through your church directory for people that could use some love this time of year. Send (or hand deliver) lots of cards to a nursing home.

Using a commercial holiday to celebrate and to spread the love of God is a great way to create wonderful memories for your family. Have fun!
