I LOVE Valentine's Day!

Since Jesus came into my heart!
Since Jesus came into my heart!
Floods of joy o'er my soul
like the sea billows roll,
Since Jesus came into my heart.
In my heart there rings a melody
there rings a melody
with heaven's harmony;
In my heart there rings a melody
there rings a melody
of LOVE.
My Jesus, I love thee,
I know thou art mine,
For thee all the follies of sin I resign;
My gracious Redeemer, my Saviour art thou
If ever I loved Thee,
My Jesus, 'tis now!
Noami and Noah in their orchestra class

Sophia in hers. 
There will be a solo concert tomorrow night
which, we are all looking forward to.
In between classes, Sophia and I went shopping for a gift for her teacher.

We finally decided on a white chocolate dipped strawberry and a card.
It was a grey day, but a happy day.
The children came home to a Valentine package from their Auntie Lisa ~ gum balls and jelly beans.
We piled into "Old Faithful" with  a prayer and drove to a friend's house.
So thankful for the evergreen trees on these grey winter days.
Craft supplies were prepared for our arrival.

And so were LOVELY treats!
I managed to get a picture before they were all devoured.

Yummy fruit smoothies and kabobs

All the young ladies (may I include myself in that group?) were very productive.
Aren't some of these cards so sweet?
I like some of the funny ones with googly eyes glued onto pictures of different animals.
The boys plays cowboys and pirates outside, coming in for  "provisions" as needed. LOL
After a yummy meal of Chicken tacos (what else?) we enjoyed
Tea and Cake!

Then it was off to church to hear some interesting and encouraging
reports from some missionaries from China. 
What a day! Full of love and gifts and fun. But that was YESTERDAY.
Fried eggs and toast in the shape of a heart.
Lovey hymns sung out to the Lord.
Valentines and balloons passed all around.

Hope you all have a beautiful day.
We love Him because He first loved us.
I pray that you are filled with the knowledge of the
intimate and deep love of
JESUS today.
