"Happy Heart Day!"

This was the sweet greeting I received from my kiddos this morning. They jumped on my bed and presented their valentines that had been hidden so very carefully under their pillows from the night before when Daddy helped them to sign cards and put into envelopes. As I tucked them into bed, they were just beaming with sneaky faces filled with joy.

My husband gave me a hanging rose heart wreath and heart fridge magnets with sayings on them. We are also looking forward to dinner with pizza for the kids and Chinese food for the parents. Also hoping for an early bedtime for the kids so that we can just hang out.

We are not going out on the town tonight as we have been "catching sneezes", if you know what I mean. :(

Here's part of a devotion I came across this morning. It is so appropriate for this "Happy Heart Day!"

The ultimate example of love:

"If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to you own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross!
~Philippians 2:1-11 NIV
