A few ideas to show love this Valentine’s Day

I know that I keep saying this, but does time seem to be moving as quickly for you as it seems for me?  Who can believe that it is already almost Valentine’s Day – mid February?  Seriously?

I’ve been collecting a Valentine’s idea board on Pinterest and all of a sudden, the holiday is here, and I’ve done nothing to prepare for it.  I’m sure you are way ahead of me, but if you aren’t, here are a few quick ideas.  I hope to take the next two days and do a few of these things and show God’s love to others beyond the walls of this home.

And of course, I couldn’t talk about Valentine’s Day treats without mentioning “Amy’s Valentine Mix” – a favorite here on Smelling Coffee.

Amy’s Valentine Mix

Sam’s Choice brand Indulgent Mix (from Wal Mart)
pink colored M&Ms
pink candy corns

++ I think that adding chocolate covered craisins would be a great addition to this mix, too.  
That’s it! Mix and enjoy. :-)

Though Valentine’s Day isn’t a “Spiritual” holiday, it is a day when we think about LOVE.  What better love could we imagine than the love of God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son who gave up everything for us?

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”  John 15:13

Let’s ask Jesus who He would like to shower with His love through us this year… and then let’s be faithful stewards of that love and share it with others. 🙂
