Good morning, and Happy Valentine's Day dear friends and Prayer Partners! This is the chilly day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it!

I enjoyed walking yesterday in the warm sunshine and cool breezes, but the park was very crowded with tourists and few regulars, It is interesting to hear them talking about the different "birds" and taking pictures . Some of them borrow the guides from the building which are very helpful in identifying the different plants. Anyway, the azaleas are blooming and everything looks lovely after the rain! God is good!

1 Corinthians 13 NLT

"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad 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 will last forever, but prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will all disappear. Now we know only a little and even the gift of prophecy reveals little! But when the end comes, these special gifts will all disappear....

There are three things that will endure--faith, hope, and love-and the greatest of these is love."

I always thank God for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
