OK so many of you may see this and say- yeah yeah....I'll skip it, but I encourage you to read this - putting your name in the blanks. In fact I challenge you to reread it several times. Let the ONE TRUE VALENTINE embrace your heart.
You know I remember a time when someone at a camp I went to referred to Christ as his sweetheart. I thought it was the strangest thought I have ever heard of. As I have grown in my faith walk....I have truly found that even in my darkest hour......God truly is my sweetheart. My healer, the ONE who gives me encouragement when I truly felt there wasn't anything left.......So be prepared for Christ to touch your heart through this precious scripture :)
