Be Imitators of Christ's LOVE

Happy Valentines Day

Therefore be imitators of God, 

as beloved children;

and walk in love, 

just as Christ also loved you 

and gave Himself up for us, 

 an offering and a sacrifice 

to God as a fragrant aroma.
Ephesians 5:1-2

  1. This is such a beautiful and hopeful sight as we still have much snow and cold ahead of us.

    I appreciated the comment you shared this morning. What a remarkable testimony for your father and the Lord.

  2. Glad it deposited HOPE into the coldness of your territory. It has been warm for about a week and finally melted the snow that had become packed into ice for such a long time here. HOPEFUL that Spring will arrive as scheduled and not devoured by the summer heat at its has been the usual for the past several years now. SPRING is my most favorite season! Everything fresh and new and springing forth - strongly vocalizing the SURVIVAL of a long cold season. Tulips are always that breath of fresh Spring air...

    Thanks S. Estole...I debated as to whether to share Dad's testimony...but the Lord said we are overcomes by His blood and the WORD of our testimony. It certainly is a testimony of His powerful GRACE!

    blessings to you and thanks for visiting and picking up the pencil

  3. Thanks for coming over for a visit.. So glad you did as it gave me a chance to find you. It's wonderful to find a blog that is dedicated to the glory of God. Your picture is beautiful and I will be glad to see the beautiful colors of spring that God provides.

  4. That's a gorgeous photo of the tulips. Our daughter lives in Washington state, but we've never been there for the tulips.

  5. Your daughter captured the tulips so wonderfully. How gorgeous they are when they are all in bloom like that. I must get down to the festival before too many years go by! I seem to manage to miss it each and every year. Blessings to you! Camille
