Love Story

If you live in this country, I don't have to tell you that today is Valentine's Day. And if you know me, I don't have to tell you that I love Ned more than anyone on earth. I also don't have to tell you that second place in my heart belongs to my kids and grandkids. After that, I love many many people. Love is such a complex emotion. Whether on the giving or receiving end, love is wonderful!
Behavioral studies say the greatest need of all men everywhere is love. I John 4:8 says "God is love". He created us to need Him, and need Him more than anything else, more than air, more than food, more than water. We need Him! We need His love! We need Him as an outlet for our love! How amazing is that? Because He loves us, we can love Him. Because of His love, we can experience love. Because we receive His love, we can give and receive love.
Every gift, every blessing, every comfort is a manifestation of His love for us. And so we, like the psalmist can say, " . . . your love is better than life." (Psalm 63:3)

Enjoy the day, enjoy the blessings, enjoy the outpouring of His love.
Love

I loved your thought that because of His love we get to have Him as the object of ours. That is awesome!

I feel like when we have relationships that are lacking in the love department that God uses those to show us His love more clearly. I know that I cling to His love and cherish it all the more because of that. What a beautiful post, Neva!

We have a ritual at our house. I hope it is more than a ritual. Ever since my first child was born We have been singing "O How I love Jesus" every night. Maybe it is one small attempt to say, the only love we know is because of Jesus. The words we say are so powerful. The love of Jesus is so powerful.

Neva -[blush, blush] - that's what I get trying to write on two new boards at about the same time. No excuse, so I'll just keep on blushing - Nev [not Lisa] Neva. Sorry!

I was reading your blog and on the radio, the song, Love or something like it has a hold on me. I don't know all the words but I thought that part is so fitting. I have a God compulsion. His love has a hold on me and according to John 10, nothing can snatch me away.
(I know that is one of your faves)
Enjoyed your thoughts,
Kel
