Tim and I weren’t really in Paris!!! (We spent the evening at Gregoryville Chrisitan Church’s Relay for Life fundraising dinner.) We had a very nice time!

Erich (our oldest son) and one of his very special friends, Mallory.

Tim surprised me with probably the best Valentine’s gift ever! This wall-hanging for our new little dining room which I have named our “Someday Heaven” room. I just about cried when I took it out of the gift bag.

Evan (our second oldest son) and his girlfriend, Maria, spent Valentine’s Day in Lexington at dinner and a movie, so I put this picture in from the Super Bowl play-offs. I didn’t want to leave them out of my “Valentine’s Memory” blog.

As Olivia and I were driving back from her indoor soccer games on Valentine’s Day these clouds overhead looked just like a broken heart. By the time we found the camera in the bottom of my purse they had started to look a little more like rabbit ears, but I still had to show the picture. It just made me think that God was somehow saying, “I know you are trying to have a good Valentine’s day without Nick and My Heart breaks with yours that you even have to try.” The bright sun behind it just made me feel His warmth shining through the brokenness.

This is Olivia and me with Mallory, Jessica, and Taylor. Mallory came up from Nashville for the weekend to visit her college friends at Kentucky Christian University. She has had a rough year……chemo and a bone marrow transplant. But doesn’t she look beautiful! We adore you, Mallory! (We adore you too, Jessica and Taylor!)

Todd (our third oldest son) and his girlfriend, Savannah, exchange their Valentine’s gifts.

Olivia’s East Carter Lady Raiders Valentine’s Box – Probably the last year we’ll have a “Valentine’s Box” made at home. I can’t believe Olivia will be in middle school next year! 🙁

John 13:34-35
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.

Just wanted to share some love with all of you before I went to bed.

Thankful for Jesus’ love each and every day of my life,
