Love is in the air :)

Valentines day isn’t a real holiday for us, meaning we don’t typically ‘celebrate’ anything other than…let’s go to dinner 🙂 But this year I made a cute little stitched tree with our initials in it and framed it for him! I found the tutorial online and if I could possibly remember where I’d post it but of course I don’t  😦 I also got him a cute card with his favorite chocolate bar and when I woke up this morning I found this cute note under my keys telling me when he first fell in love with me (and yes it was a mere 3 months before we got married, but 8 years later we’re still together…don’t judge) and told me I was the ‘better half’ so he left me half of his chocolate 🙂 I love him! Too cute! So here’s the stitched tree I was talking about:And here it is framed…didn’t do so well on the framing part but it works and I think it’s cute, at least for my first time stitching!

BSF just so happened to fall on Valentine’s Day this year and wow was it a treasure, it was something else to hear 750 women singing ‘Jesus Loves Me’…here’s part of it:

My Valentine from our Savior…

Isaiah 43:2
When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.

He says “when”, not “if”…everyone of us will eventually if not have already gone through these hardships but He promises us that He will always be there. This is truly comforting to me.
