Be My Valentine

Posted by Jeanne

Hello.

These flowers are for you. Think of them as a belated Valentine's Day gift. From me to you.

They're my way of saying thanks for hanging in there with me. Thank you for your love and your care and your prayers.

Thank you for putting up with me.

Thank you for your lovely emails. And comments. And Facebook messages. And texts.

Thank you for not being cross with me for not answering. I want to, believe me, but I just don't know what to say.

Generally, the words bubble up out of me. Now, I spend ages staring at my dashboard. I know what I want to write, I just don't seem able to get my thoughts into print. I think I'm trying too hard.

I value every word that you say. Your comments mean so much to me. Thank you for bothering to leave them.

That's why I'm giving you these red roses from what remains of our garden.

I hope you like them.

Thank you again, my dear friends.

Ah, so beautiful.
God's goodness and glory are everywhere - even in a flood.

It takes time. We have plenty. Words will come when you're ready. Meanwhile, may I counter your virtual flowers with a virtual hug?

Oh, Jeanne, they look fantastic in my office! Will you take a nice, long and lingering smell of their perfume for me?
Heaps of love,

Thinking and praying for you guys much more than what i've communicated to you.

Bless you, dear one, beloved daughter of God.

Thank you Jeanne! I often don't know what to say to you it's so hard for me to understand what you guys have been through / are going through but we love you guys and thank God for the beautiful roses from your garden - like a rainbow after storm, small glimpses of His love for you:)

Jeanne, they are lovely. I think of you and your family often. Hardly a day goes by that I don't feel an ache for your plight. You remain in my prayers.

Rebecca said...

<3 Lovely <3 roses, Jeanne. Happy Valentines Day to you too.

The roses are gorgeous, Jeanne, and brightened my day. You are never far from my thoughts. Every morning in our prayer time, the girls and I pray for our friends in Australia who are cleaning up and putting their lives back together. Today our Scripture reading was from Romans: nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. I pray that sustains you, as well.

The flowers are just beautiful, I can almost smell their scent. May the Lord be with you each day as you rebuild.

Blessings

Ahhhh, you're so cute. x

You are never far from my thoughts these days. I myself am lost for words in what to say to you. Know that you are valued, loved and treasured.

The words will come. And when they do, we'll still be here.

I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
