Jesus, be mine {free printable}

"I give my heart to Jesus.
It's kind of small, like me.
But every time I feel it beat,
I know he's loving me."
-My Valentine for Jesus, by Laurie Lazzaro Knowlton

Valentine's Day, February 14, is a day dedicated to the exchange of tokens of affection. every year we celebrate with such tokens...chocolate, flowers, jewelry, or dinner by candlelight. we exchange cards asking friends and loved ones to "BE MINE" and to let them know "I HEART YOU."

i was thinking about this holiday of expressing and celebrating love and devotion. i was thinking about how much love is poured in and out of this "holiday." hearts all aflutter and passion renewed...

and i decided... i want a special Valentine this year.

i want Jesus to be my Valentine.
Jesus Valentines

these Valentines cards were designed by me especially for Him, and i want to share them with you. print them out, tuck them in your Bible, give them to your friends, hang them on your bulletin board. write Jesus a love letter on the back, celebrate His adoration for you. ask Him to be Yours. thank God for loving you. praise Him for the promises true. pour out your love for Him. express your love for the One and Only.

"Love God, your God, with your whole heart:
love him with all that's in you,
love him with all you've got!"
- Deuteronomy 6:5 The Message

and for extra fun, here are some books for children that show Valentine's Day is much more than paper hearts and candy kisses...
