It’s hard to pick just one verse about love to put on the chalkboard in the kitchen. But this one… well, it seemed like the perfect valentine message for us all:
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” — Romans 8:38-39
This Valentine’s Day, may you know that you are loved beyond measure and held by a love that never stops.
Want to celebrate? Here are three easy — and inexpensive ways — to add a little love to your home:
1. We each drew or cut out hearts and put them in inexpensive frames. (I bought these about a year ago from the Dollar Tree and I just change the artwork out seasonally.) For the two younger boys, I drew hearts and they colored them in. These should help liven up our mantel.
2. Who doesn’t love the amazing pipe cleaner? With just a few twists and tugs, you can easily make this garland. (Some of my hearts are a bit crooked but don’t judge me.)
3. I’m a bit unconventional with my China cabinet. I try to put things in there that are meaningful and make me smile — but are not necessarily related to dining. For Valentine’s Day, I pulled together some pictures from our wedding, a Bible that Daddy gave to Mama the Christmas before they married, my grandma’s wedding rings and a figurine of an angel with “the greatest of these is love.”
Do you have ideas to share, too?
