Gateway Friends -
Tomorrow most Americans will celebrate Valentines Day and spend an average of $136.57 on their sweetheart. Flowers, cards, chocolate, jewelry, stuffed animals, and other trinkets will be exchanged. I read one stat that reported 58 million pounds of chocolate will be purchased this week. I was thinking of picking up a Papa Murphy's Heart Pizza for $9 bucks. Pretty romantic, right?! :)
Whatever your plans, my hope is that you understand and embrace how much God loves you. The famous and familiar Bible verse, John 3:16 proves it, Jesus showed it, and the Holy Spirit continues to reveal it. God loves you. Enjoy the chocolate, cards, and whatever else this Valentines Day... but regardless of gifts, please remember that you're God's true love.
