Valentine's Day With Jesus

Valentine's Day With Jesus
By: Marilyn Ferguson

Jesus does not send perfume
to linger in the air.
Instead He sends salvation, sweet
to show how much He cares.

He doesn't bring me candy hearts
in boxes of delight.
Instead He always lets me know
I'm precious in His sight.

He doesn't pass out pretty cards
trimmed in shades of red.
Instead He gave His life for me
His precious blood was shed.

He doesn't hand out fancy gifts
like we would send to mother.
Instead He sends a message clear
to always love each other.

He doesn't give me teddy bears
that whimper, "Please be mine."
Instead He gave His heart to me
I wear it all the time.

He doesn't give me roses, pink
for all the world to see.
Instead He gave eternal life
that's good enough for me.

Last night I watched a great movie. The makers of Fireproof and Facing The Giants really know how to make good movies. And Kirk Cameron was icing on the cake. To tell the truth, I've watched Kirk Cameron in other movies and TV sitcoms but this is the best I've ever saw him perform. Even if this movie may be directed to married people it is still a good movie for single people too. Fireproof has the elements of action, humor, and drama all rolled into one, but more importantly God shines through the whole movie. I've watched other love stories and this is the first one I've ever cried during. This is a five star Christian movie.

Friends (who are like family) and Family!!!

A friend loveth at all times... Proverbs 17:17

Yesterday we had thunderstorms and really bad winds. Well our electric went out and I wasn't getting a very good signal on my cellphone at our house and my niece was text messaging me like crazy asking about tornado warnings. My dad had a signal on his cell out on our porch, so I sent my niece a message off his phone. My mom needed to pick some items up from the store, so we left a little earlier to go to the store then we were headed to church. (Note: The storm was over, but the wind was still blowing.)

As soon as we hit the highway my cellphone and my dad's cellphone started to go off. My dad gave me his phone to send text messages to my niece. I took his phone, then looked at my phone. I had a text message from my cousin Marcy asking how we were doing. She said that they had trees that had fell down around their house. After texting my niece a bunch of times I finally was able to send Marcy a text to let her know we were OK and didn't have electric. We went to one store then on our way to the other store my phone starts ringing. It was my friend Trish (who is like a sister to me) she said that her mom wanted her to get a hold of us and let us know that they had cancelled church.

I was a little upset and I told Trish that I wanted to go to church because they had electric. Trish told me that we could come to her apartment but she didn't have cable, but we could play Wii. Trish must have been on her land line with her mom because then she said that her mom said we could come to her house. After we went to the store we decided to go to Trish's mom's house. So we hung out there until 9pm and watched TV and had cherry pie!!!!

Every night when I thank God for all my blessings I always remember to thank him for my friends who are like family and for my family members. Thanks to Marcy for checking to see if we were OK. For a little humor about the whole situation, me and my dog slept in our living last night because he is afraid of the dark. Then when the electric came back on about 4:30am, I sent him out to go bathroom and put him in the bathroom where he sleeps. Then I decided since I missed reading my Bible and devotional for yesterday, well just say I was reading it between 4:45am to 5:30am.
