happy valentines day

if i speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy,  

but don't love,


i'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.

if i speak God's word with power, revealing all His mysteries and making everything plain as day, 

and if i have faith that says to a mountain "jump" and it jumps, but i don't love, 

i am nothing. 

if i give all i own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but i don't love, 

i've gotten nowhere.

so no matter what i say, 

no matter what i believe, 

and no matter what i do,

i'm bankrupt without love. 

 love never gives up

love cares more for others than for self.

 love doesn't want what it doesn't have

 it takes pleasure in the flowering of truth

it puts up with anything

it trusts God always. 

love always looks for the best.

it never looks back and it keeps going to the end. 

taken from 1 Corinthians chapter 13 (the message)

we had a fun valentines day yesterday since avery's in school and i'm having knee surgery later on today. (!)
avery and i had fun making little matchbox valentines for her little classmates.
and we enjoyed our outing to go visit dave's grandma.  avery read her a little valentine story and we gave her new pics of the kids.  will you pray with us that grandma cattani will come to know of this glorious and mysterious love?
