Two days in the Church year have collided. Now, we only have to figure out if ashes cancel out Valentine’s Day chocolates or not!
Okay, no dark side to the Valentine’s Day holiday but there comes a time when one finally has to dispose of the fading flowers. That day was today for me. My kindly husband, however, got me a second bouquet a few days after Valentine’s to supplement the vase arrangement but, they, too, were removed from the premises this morning aka thrown away. I snapped a quick picture of their final resting place in the kitchen trash before they left for good! Yes, I often get this philosophical before breakfast when I’m hungry!
A dozen roses found there way to my front door compliments of my husband on Valentine’s Day!
“Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” (1 Cor. 13:4-7
“Don’t you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you?” (1 Cor. 7:16)
“The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will not lack anything good.”
“When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.” (Prov. 16:7
“Trust in the Lord with all your hear, and do not lean on your own understanding. Your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Prov. 3:5-6)
