    “I love you so much; I will adopt you as my sons and daughters, and you will inherit eternal life.”
    This is my favorite Valentine from God! I think it’s hard for children who are abused and abandoned to see God differently than the parental figures that were in their lives early on, but what a joy and what love – when that realization happens. I’m so thankful that we are children of God and nothing can ever change that. Thank you for your post! So many Valentines from the Source of Love.

    1. Yvonne

      Thank you Peggy. It is such a incredible gift to be considered sons and daughters of the most High. Happy Valentines and God bless

  2. A beautiful Valentine’s Day post, which is just as good the day after as on the day itself. Thank you for this list of the many reminders of God’s love for us. What a Savior! Our God is a God of love, mercy, and grace!

  3. Chloe Flanagan

    Yvonne, thank you for sharing these reminders of the most beautiful love of all. What a blessing and comfort we have in these promises.

  4. I appreciate all of these thoughts and verses, Yvonne. Probably top of my list is this one: “I love you so much; I will forgive you when you sin against me and return to me.” Somehow, God’s love meets me even after I sin. Such a merciful and blessed reality.

  5. Yvonne, what lovely truths!! My favorite verse is, “Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God’s Valentine card to us is THE BEST!! Thank you for sharing:)
