Sweet Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..."
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

We finished our Valentines for the kids at school (inspired by Jones Design Company). They turned out so cute! They had the cutest party at school on Friday - the kids loved it. We did the little cards and a chocolate for the kids, and I made the notebooks for the teachers. On top of the notebooks is the Bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:13 - "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Happy Heart Day - show someone some love today!
