The Real Gift of Love...

Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Today is a day to celebrate love… some might think that that only refers to love between a couple- married or in love. I beg to differ.

1 John 4:7, 8 says, “Beloved, let us love one another. For love is of God, and everyone that loves is born of God and knows God. He that does not love, does not know God. For God is love.” We have the knowledge of true love because of God’s sacrifice of love to us… that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to save us from our sins. John 3: 16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son to die that whoever would believe in Him would not perish because of sin, but would have everlasting life with Him.”

This is all to say, that no matter what, you are truly loved. The Creator of the Universe and Saviour of the world, specifically loves YOU. How wonderfully amazing. So… what do you do when you owe someone something that you could never repay Him for??? THANK HIM. Show that you love Him by unconditionally loving others as He loved you and me.

So saying, I just want you to know that I truly DO love you all. You have been given to me as family and friends for a very special purpose. I thank God for you, and I just want you to know that. I hope you have a wonderful day today and throughout this week. And may our awesome God bless your socks off! “May God bless you, keep you, shine His face upon you, be gracious to you, and give you Peace.” (Numbers 6)

Love, and many thoughts,

Celita and Anthony and family (Antonio, Giosaia, Luca, Miranda, and Dario) :-)
