ST. VALENTINE'S FEAST DAY
ST. VALENTINE'S FEAST DAY BLESSINGS
GOD IS AWESOME
These are a few pics of Valentines set up for the kids the night before St.Valentines Day morning
This was an unexpectedly difficult St. Valentines Day, as Gracie Ann was admitted to the ICU and her daddy was at the hospital, right by her side
Despite the suffering on that Valentines day eve, It was a very BLESSED St. Valentine's Day as our Lord revealed His Most Beautiful Face to us, holding our family so close to Him
GOD REVEALED HIMSELF TO ME....
(As I worried terribly about my little Gracie Ann) THROUGH MY SWEET SISTER, KELLEY
Who would have thought......God works through Google
(me and my sister)
As I was sick with worry about our sweet Gracie Ann, my sister told me about St.Valntine being the patron saint of people suffering with epilepsy/seizures......I NEVER knew that about St. Valentine!
Thank you Jesus for showing us that You are with us
Thank you, to my sweet sister, Kelley, who loves me so much to allow our Lord to work through her, taking her time to comfort me with this information about St. Valentine.....the patron Saint for children/all people suffering with the very disease/condition that our little bunny is affected by, and was suffering with ON St. Valentine's Feast Day.
It did not make my heart less broken for my baby, but it comforted me knowing that Jesus was with us and in control.....
(He is so merciful to reminding us of this constantly)
and for that, I was so very grateful to our Mighty Creator, Christ Jesus
VALENTINES DAY MORNING
I got up with the kids (feeling very broken, but still managing to smile) to wish them a Happy Valentine's Day before they left for school.
Jeremy was in the hospital with Gracie Ann, so the morning felt empty, as my baby Gracie Ann was not home, nor was my love and lifelong Valentine, Jeremy.
Madison walked up to me and handed me a card. I asked her what it was for and she simply said...
"It's for Valentine's Day, Mom"
I thanked her and opened up the card
It was odd that it was not in an envelope, but I didn't give that much thought as I opened it up to read it.
I quickly realized that the card was NOT from Madison, but it was from Jeremy
NOT ONLY WAS IT FROM JEREMY.....
But it was the Valentines Day card that Jeremy had given to me exactly 20 years ago on Valentines Day, February 14, 1997....when we were engaged to be married
How did God do this....
Well, Jeremy, the kids and I had gone over to my parent's house for a Sunday dinner two nights prior Valentine's Day, and the kids always love to search around my old childhood room for things from when I was younger......
NOT ONLY DID MADISON FIND AN OLD CARD FROM JEREMY (which there are many)
But of all of the cards that I have save over the year.....she found THE VALENTINE'S DAY card that was from exactly 20 years ago
GOD IS THAT AMAZINGLY AND ABSOLUTELY LOVING AND TOTALLY AND COMPLETLEY AWESOMENESS PERSONIFIED
He just loves us so much that He set this most special gift in motion before we even knew what was to come
(He loves all of His children so very much....how blessed are all of us)
Thank You so much Jesus,for always showing us Your Beautiful love for us and for so mercifully holding our wounded hearts in Your Gentle Hands.
As we were hurting for our little baby girl.....we knew that Gracie Ann was safe in Your Mighty Arms on that beautiful Feast Day of St. Valentine.
We love You so much today tomorrow and forever!
love, kerry ann
HAPPY ST. VALENTITNE'S DAY
