  1. Oh, how right you are!!!! To be important enough to be loved by the Lord Jesus every single minute of the day and night–and Him making intercession to the Father for us—that is love!!!. Nails did not hold Him on the cross, LOVE did!!! To be love by Jesus is insurmountable. Add to that, God singing over us just because we are His children and He delights in us!!!! No kind of love can be that satisfying!!!!!

    So, your messages are like a continuation of his love and a reminder of how much God loves me.
    God is SO good!!

  4. Jennifer,

    I was listening to radio this AM & the Christian station had Gary Chapman author of “The 5 Love Languages” on as guest. He was explaining in detail about the different love languages. My love languages are words of affirmation–telling me how much you appreciate all I do or how good a cook I am. Another biggie for me is acts of service. Do something for me like take out trash, cook a meal, help around the house while I work. That speaks volumes to me. Really shows me that you care. I don’t need gifts No pink or red hearts. Definitely nothing flowery. Just simply do things for me & shower me with affirmation. Better than all that is the love Jesus has for me. He left the splendor of heaven, came down to broken Earth & died a horrible death on the cross just for me! It was my sins & His love for me that held him there. Praising & thanking God for His lavish love.

    Happy Valentine’s day! P.S. Jennifer how you doing? Immune system doing better?

    Blessings 🙂

    • I agree, Beth! Those little things can show so much love. Still nothing like His lavish love. Love how you worded that! And thank you for asking about me. I am doing okay. More good days than bad, so that is a win in my book! xo
