I hope you all had a great Valentine's day :))
sigh, with no man in sight, this day is usually hard for me, and reminds me of times with my ex fiance, BUT today was better.
i hanged out with my best friend who is single also, then we went to a bible study and DUG into God's word and then i went to visit my mom and stepfather!
so it was a beautiful day :)
But honestly i want to remind everyone that this is a commercial holiday, they sell those Valentine's candies, hearts, teddy's for a reason, sadly it's to make money and to make a profit ... AND i believe that my future husband should honor me and love me each day each day of the year not just on Valentine's day :)
not to berate the Valentine's day because there is some beauty in it, people celeberating their love ..giving flowers to each other..going out to dinner..YES all these are great..BUT look at John 3:16..God so loved his one and ONLY son that he let HIM die on a Cross to save us from all our sin and to save us from ourselves..ISN"T this love better tons better than any love on this earth?? :))
Jesus wants to give us a Valentine's day each and every single day of our life. What i mean by that is that Jesus wants to lavish HIS love upon us each and every single day just like on Valentine's day..actually even more, Because He's our Father, our Provider, Our beloved groom..HE wants us to love HIM each day of our life too, and not just on Sunday..Sundays are only 1 day a week...won't you give him each day, each hour, each momment?? That is the only true way to live..And it's sooo worth it :)
we were talking about this at my other new bible study in Stratford on Thursdays and i was saying how sometimes i wonder IF IF this way is truly best..Yes i know the World is dirty, soiled, and there is nothing good in it, BUT i see so many friends from work who live lives full of world's definition of "fun" they party, drink, cuss, sleep around, get truly wasted. And after seeing just how sad they are by the next day I know that's NOT the way to live and be truly happy.
BUT sometimes i am a little envious of all the friends and guys they meet.
Please pray for me about that that I only concentrate on Christ and that i pray for my future husband daily and that i prepare for him.
i want to be a good wife to my future husband. I want to give him glory and GOD glory first of all, him second..BUT i just need not to give up!
Please pray for me in this time, and please PLEASE pray that i am a good example to my acquaintances and friends at work..they need God's love to shine upon them, and i feel like I am "Jesus" to them, that i am the only one they see that can show Christ to them...in skin and bone, i have a really good friend at work and i feel i am the only one in her circle of friends who is Christian..i need good tips on how to show her God's love without being pushy and preachy..she doesn't like that, i even invited her once to my church she said maybe sometime she'll come..i just need wisdom about that :)
so please pray for me to show her God's love in the best way HE knows how :)
Also before i go, i gotta go because i gotta get up in 7 hours at 6:30AM i need to work at 7:30AM
i wanted to report some good news about my running, i am now able to run 5 minutes and 20 seconds without stopping, when in the beggining i could only run 1 minute and 30 seconds..I tripled my speed in around 3 weeks!

To God be all glory!
