As I think of Valentine’s Day coming up, people have said to us, 

“You are so lucky to have such a great marriage.”  

There is no luck involved. It didn’t happen by chance. 

We’ve weathered many storms. 

We’ve summited mountains.

We’ve walked through the valley of the shadow of death. 

We try to see each other through God’s lens. 

We are a work in progress until Jesus returns.

No matter how much we’re committed to loving one another, we aren’t first in each other’s lives…God is our first love. And because of that, we are better together.  

Whether you are single or married, God has you written on His heart.

God not only wants your whole heart; He wants your heart whole.

Valentine’s Day, and every other day of the year for that matter, it’s not about us. It’s about loving people into the Kingdom of God.
