As Valentines Day approaches in LOVEland, Colorado, hundreds of Valentines are displayed on downtown light poles, as this photo shows. Red hearts stenciled with white lettering declare messages of love from lovers to one another, parents to kids, friends to friends. LOVE IS IN THE AIR….literally!
The city of LOVEland also has a program of receiving Valentines from all 50 states and 120 countries. Volunteers receive these Valentine wishes in large envelopes, stamp them individually with a special message of LOVE from LOVEland and then mail them out to the intended recipients. This ReStamping program is in it’s 74th year!
One of my favorite LOVE SONGS, is a song by Cory Asbury entitled, RECKLESS LOVE. The lyrics describe the RECKLESS LOVE my God has for me and for ALL lost and broken people. It brings tears to my eyes…tears of joy, every time I hear it. If you have never heard it, use this youtube link and take it in..http://youtu.beSc6SSHuZvQE.
