LOVE


"I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day.  When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon."  ~Author Unknown

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! As you can see here, Phil and I are literally in LOVE!! The third picture is our son and daughter-in-law. And see little Anne Marie's head in the V? It was a bitterly cold and very windy day when us womenfolk made our husbands go out and stand behind this sign. The wind was literally blowing things over. Phil and I wore hats because the wind was blowing our hair straight up! Then upon returning to the warm house, all flushed and breathless...I grabbed Phil's hand...and...wrote all over his finger with a marker!! And he never said a WORD!!! In my book, this is true love.

“Seize life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh yes—God takes pleasure in your pleasure! Dress festively every morning. Don't skimp on colors and scarves. Relish life with the spouse you love each and every day of your precarious life. Each day is God's gift.”
Ecc. 9

“Sing your hearts out to God! Thank him to his face! He gets angry once in a while, but across a lifetime there is only love.”
Psalm 30

I've missed you all and am catching up. For those of you who wanted to know what kind of computer I got, it is a Toshiba Portege R835. A very lightweight laptop. But I am still using my old computer, because the computer man has to come back Wednesday to fix several changeover issues.

Relish life with the spouse you love each and every day of your precarious life. Each day is God's gift, this is perfect, the verse.
i LOVE the LOVE and where is that great big LOVE? i did not see Anne Marie had to go back and find her. this is great and give Phil a hug from me for allowing you to draw on his fingers. LOVE YOU Sister mine.

I LOVE that header!!! So cute and such a neat post. I was thinking just this morning that I've missed you and was hoping it wasn't because of my negligence in checking in. Sometimes I get busy in my head and don't get to everybody's. I'm always working on some project for Family History.

It's nice to see such lovely couples in love :) That is really cool. I hadn't noticed Anne Marie in the 3rd picture I had to scroll back up to look and there she was.
Phil is such a good sport, I can't imagine what Wade would do if I started drawing on him....lol

LC said...

Loved all of you "in love."Missed the granddaughter until I read your post. I already had a bubble of happiness at your ingenuity in finding unique ways to celebrate occasions and truths through photos. But that sweet face peeking out of the v and the impromptu finger puppets filled me with laughter, not out loud, but pleasantly bubbling around, tickling me on the inside. And no, it is not gas!

DawnTreader said...
