Five Minute Friday: Beloved

linking up as part of a series from

Valentine's Day.  I didn't know my kids would be so enamored with the holiday this year.  They never really were old enough to get it before this.  We spent weeks making Valentines cards for each other.  We decorated Valentines boxes.  We planned on making a Valentines day cake.  The day of, I hung a garland, and Jackson was so excited when he came downstairs.  He kept saying to me, "You can't get mad today, it's Valentine's Day!"  He was right!  So I laughed and moved on.  It's so fun to have a day to love each other well.  He cried when we crossed the day off the calendar last night.  But I told him we can celebrate Valentine's Day every day!  We can love each other, be nice to each other, and not get mad.  :)  He was okay with that idea.  And of course isn't that what Christ calls us to?  LOVE ONE ANOTHER.  Not just on Valentine's Day, but every day. 

"Beloved, let us love one another.  For love is of God, and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God.  He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is love!"--1 John 4:7-8
