February Love

Welcome to my blog for an uncharacteristically short post on 5 things to love about February! (Prepare yourself for exclamation point overload now!)

5. January’s over!
Yippeee! (Sorry, all you lovers of the first month. I kind of just buckle up, hang on, and wait for this one to be over. It feels like a real cause for celebration when I turn that calendar page to February.)

4. Only 10 months until Christmas rolls around again!
Yes, I DO start my Christmas countdown this early. The anticipation is half the joy of celebrating my favorite time of year. (Stop judging. I’m no where near the only person who does this!)

3.  A new blog header!
Isn’t it cute? I painted it myself because my favorite artist (that would be my sister, Elizabeth Plath) wouldn’t do it for me. Perhaps I should consider paying her…Stay tuned to see if she helps me out in March.

2. Chicken Soups galore!

I have one story in the book Random Acts of Kindness and two in Curvy and Confident. With all the kind people I know it was easy to write a story about one of the members here at our church who helped me learn how to garden. As for the other two, well, let’s just say sometimes it pays to be, a-hem, curvy. If you’d like a copy of either of these books, you can find them on Amazon. I’d also be happy to hook you up with one. Just let me know!

1. And my most favorite thing about February is LOVE.
True love, real love, forever love. In other words, God’s love for each one of us. He didn’t just say it, or send flowers, chocolates, jewelry, or gifts, He gave us His own Son. His love, found simply stated in this beautiful passage, is the inspiration for this month’s header.“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
Never forget that you are SO LOVED.

Happy February!

    January is too long; it goes on and on. February is nice and short!

  3. Thank you, Ann! It’s always so nice to hear from you. We sure love you and Bill, too, and really miss you both. The kids and I were just talking today about how winter is starting to feel long right about now, but you’re right, February is a short one. I already feel like it’s cruising by a little too fast! Of course, you are probably getting ready for Spring any day now. I think we’ll have to wait a little longer up here. 🙂
