A Forever Valentine

Two years before my beloved husband was called home to Jesus, he made this valentine for me. He wasn't able to drive and we had decided not to give cards.

My sweet husband had a beautiful and romantic heart. He couldn't let Valentine's Day pass without notice. Truly this is the most treasured valentine I ever received.

Today is the first Valentine's Day without him by my side. There will be no more card giving or receiving. But this valentine is framed and hung beside the bed where I see it every morning and every night.

Jesus said, "I am the bread of life... This is the bread that came down from heaven,...the one who eats this bread will live forever." (John 6:48m, 58) NRSV

I know through the promise that my beloved husband and I will be reunited one day. When God brings soul mates together, their love can withstand all trials as long as God is included in their hearts. Our love was bound in faith and though we are temporarily separated, our love and our lives belong to God who has promised us eternity.

Happy Valentine's Day!
