simple things sunday

Homemade Valentines are the best. A simple thing that has so much heart.

Here I am, holding up my favorite valentine by far, made by Benjamin, age 6

(that's a picture of me, by the way. :) )

If you lift open the blue heart cut out, you see a "secret" green heart underneath with MOM written there. How cute is that?!


There's something so precious about a child's innocent expression of love. Children see things so simply and beautifully. They give themselves fully to others and feel emotions completely, without fear or inhibition. Us grown-ups can definitely learn a thing or two from the little ones!

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14

Hope you have had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Jesus loves you!!
