Tim's Valentine

     Tim came in the other day and asked, "Since I did so well on the Chirstmas present do I have to buy you a Valentines present?" I let him know he never has to buy me a gift; he gets to buy me wonderful gifts. That went over like a lead balloon. Anyway, I told him instead of a gift, I would like for him to write me a love letter. I had been going through some old papers and came across a letter he had written me while we were in college. I knew he would be great at it.     I was so excited to recieve my letter. It was two pages long. I loved it. Of course, I had to write a letter of my own. I felt like we were teenagers passing notes in school. As I read my letter, I began to realize how much life we have had experienced and what this big man means to me. Comparing the letter from college with the new one, I could see how much we have grown. It seems, the longer two people are together the more you take each other for granted; forgetting what you mean to each other.  It was great to see what I meant to someone in print. Love letters are great!!
     You do realize we have the most wonderful love letter at our finger tips? The Bible is written for each one of us. When we read it, we are reminded of how precious we are to Him. That He loves us enough to make the greatest sacrifice on our behalf. And it is all in print. Read it you will be amazed.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that who ever believes in him shall not perish but have ever lasting life.
John 3:16
