happy valentine's day

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Lauren has a game tonight 4 hours away. It is a playoff game for the state. I f we lose the season is over. If they can pull off a win it will be the first girl's basketball playoff victory in the history of HCA. I will update you later about the outcome of the game.

A day of love. Our Lord loves us beyond our ability to understand or adequately respond to it. He has been revealing to me a deep aspect of His love for me. He has brought home to me the idea of being the Bride of Christ. The position of bride is one of privilege and one of honor. We find it hard to embrace that idea because we know the fallen condition we have come from. God longs for relationship with us. His love is so deep it compelled Jesus to go the cross. His love is so wide it covers a multitude of sins. His love is so high we can actually get caught up in it, if we allow ourselves to open our hearts and attempt to understand that, that surpasses knowledge. Today let the Lord love on you. Invite Him to convince you of His love for you. You will then begin to see things in light of that love. The sunset will proclaim His love, the stars in the sky will cry out I love you. Quit trying to justify whether or not you deserve this kind of love, you don't but it is yours anyway. Thank Him for it and rest in it.

It's so easy to feel unworthy for our Lord. Your blog touched my heart greatly. My heart is so filled with his love and mercy. I am his beloved. What a nice thing to be reminded of. Thanks, many blessings your way! Your friend, Susie

Good stuff...
I have been meditating on Ps. 103:11-13..."For high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him."
The Deep and Wide Love of God...vertical and horizonal unending love of God...the picture of the Cross...True Love...Happy Valentines!
Love you,girl...
Cathy
ps...Go Lauren!!! Hope ya'll win!
