All About Love: Happy Valentine's Day

It's all about love today for the Faith Jam!  Let's keep it light.

I was thinking this morning about all the different kinds of love.

I love my husband.

I love my son.

I love my sister, my parents, and the rest of my family.

I love my friends and my brothers and sisters in the Lord.

I love chocolate and puppies and stay-at-home days.

And I love God.

Obviously I don't feel the same kind of love toward puppies that I feel toward God.  But I was thinking that God is like an umbrella over all of these other gifts.  After all, "Every good and perfect gift is from above" (James 1:17a), right?

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. God has really been throwing out James 1:17 to me a lot lately! So often, I am ungrateful for the wonderful, good, and precious gifts he gives me. So, yes! Puppies!!! Definitely a God-gift. :)

  5. "God is like an umbrella over all of these other gifts."

    I think that is a beautiful and modern translation of James 1:17! Love it.
