Today Reminder – 14 February 2017

A reminder for today
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love is in the air and everyone has something red on to celebrate the day of love or rather more love than usual. We bought chocolates for the teachers and my youngest one was so excited to give his to his teacher that he ran into the class straight for her and gave it to her, surprising his teacher completely. Obviously, he was very happy with himself. It is nice to give and when we can give love, it is even greater, since love is the greatest. Do you have any plans for today? Do you have anything special planned? It is so nice to see people do that little extra for their loved ones.

We do not have much planned. It is a school night so we will keep it safely at home. We bought mom a big bunch of roses and a chocolate. She was very happy and off course I am not allowed to eat any chocolates at this time so I am a little envious. This week we started full prep diet so sugar and salt is down to the minimum. 

So what can we say about love. There is no greater gift that to give love, because with love comes a whole world of great things:

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 

Love is God and God is love and with love there is no hurt and no pain and no hate. If we love the way God wants us to love we will align ourselves completely with his heart. Today all you need is love. Give it and accept it. Let love be the driving force of who you are and let love shine through you so that the light will be visible to all. Through love we will conquer the enemy, because he functions with hate and destruction and we counter with love and rejuvenation. 

Lord. Let your love fill our hearts so that we can transfer it to all we see and that everyone will feel the warmth of your love so that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that you are God. Help us as we put on your armour so that we will be fearless and bold. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
