My Valentines

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ! I hope this finds each of you very well and beginning your week full ohope and peace. I am doing well, enjoying a quiet night with my dear family. Growing up, Momma always blessed and spoilt us children by making every Christmas, Easter, and Valentines Day special. Some of the special and memorable things she (and Daddy!!) would do were: give us new pajamas on Christmas Eve, always (for my last 21 years!) decorate eggs and hide them on Easter morning, and bring us a special “foo-foo” coffee for our birthdays. For  Valentines Day I have fond memories of helping pick out my siblings balloons and candy from Fred Myers; and I can remember waking up to find Valentine themed trinkets and goodies hand-picked for each of us kids on the table . . . no wonder I love holidays–I have a wonderful mommy who made them extra special for me!! I learned so much from my momma and one of those things is this: it is worth the effort to bless others and make their day special. {I LOVE YOU Mommy and Daddy!} πŸ™‚ 
This year I am very excited because I was able to make a few valentines. In my yonger years I would try to give out valentines to various people … but that was during schooling years which were full of insecurities and fears. So often I felt that I was on the bottom of the totem pole (and perhaps I was :), and so most of my efforts, thoughts, and actions were aimed at my some how climbing the social ladder and into popularity. πŸ™‚ Needless to say, some of the valentines I handed out were simply for selfish, vain reasons and thereforethey never meant much to me. But this year has been different; this year I was able to make just a few valentines and the dear people I want to give them to are people who I love and that makes a world of difference from my schooling years. For my twenty-first birthday Daddy and Mooma bought me a Cricut and I have been having a blast working with it!! πŸ™‚

Aren’t they cute? I am so excited to give them to my family members tomorrow . . . fun!! Lord willing, we will be having heart shaped biscuits and gravy too.
 I hope that you all have a blessed day tomorrow.
With much love from your sister in Christ,

  1. Oh, Frannie, your cards are so beautiful!!

    Biscuits and gravy sounds delicious!! How clever to make heart-shaped biscuits for Valentine's Day!

    I hope you have a wonderful, sweet, joyful Valentine's Day with your family, and hope your week is equally fun! πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you Miss Linda!

    Hee hee, the heart shaped biscuits were my dear brother's idea. Our first Valentines Day in Missouri he made the special meal all by himself as a surprise! πŸ™‚

    Thank you! I hope that you also had a joyful Valentines Day and I also hope you have a great day!!

    I will be praying for you!
    Your sister in Christ, Frannie

  3. Frannie,

    I think that your homemade Valentine cards are lovely! They look much more creative and charming than the ones that people usually buy in the stores. It looks like you had a fun time making them, too. πŸ™‚

    At any rate, I enjoyed visiting your blog today. I read some of the quotes along your sidebar. I especially liked the one quote from your daddy. He is definately a wise man. πŸ™‚

    You have a lovely blog, and seem to have a true love for the Lord. πŸ™‚ You are welcomed to visit my blog if you desire.

    Blessings,

    -Lady Rose
