What a word love is!  I have always felt loved, but when I embarked on my personal journey of reading God's word on January 18th I opened a whole new understanding of what love is.   I am now in my fourth book of the bible, and there are days when I think, "Wow! What love He has for us to save his people or offer them forgiveness from all types of sin."  In this journey I was praying that God would help me be able to determine what I should do with my time, because I was overwhelmed with what was most important in my life, and he has shown me.  He is my center and when I am in conversation and prayer with him I feel most whole.  I have a strong desire to be in constant contact with my Lord and his word.  His word has brought comfort to my troubled heart.  He knows what I need to become a better person and a stronger Christian.  These scriptures have been applicable to my life, they may help you in your walk of faith...

"Do not nurse hatred in your heart for any of your relatives.  Confront people directly so you will not be held guilty for their sin" - Leviticus 19: 17

I have been praying this priestly blessing, "May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.  May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace."          - Numbers 6:24-26

My Valentine and I at the Herlong Mansion (another possible post)

On this special day of love it is an amazing feeling to know that you are loved and feel loved.  Waking up this morning to a hubby who brought me coffee and a warm peice of Publix's pecan ring (my favorite) in bed I felt loved.   Opening my Valentine's gift to find DOVE milk chocolate and Nicholas Spark's newest novel I knew I was loved.  Spending the morning in prayer with the Lord I felt God's amazing love.  All day I got to share my love with Adam and our families!  Adam and I also got to share our love on the Saturday night with everyone who was cheering on the UF basketball team, when we were on their kiss cam...haha!! It was a first and possibly the last, but it was something I will always remember.  I got to smooch my valentine :) and now every Gator knows that he is mine..ha!  I hope each and everyone's day was filled with love!
