Valentine Apothecary Jars… Faith, Hope, and Love

  It is hard to believe that we are well on our way to Valentine’s Day! Last year I posted on January 31st about “LOVE is a Verb” . I never would have anticipated what would  occur less than 24 hours later, that would totally  consume my life, Trish’s life, and our family’s lives for the next year. On February 1st last year, we lost my father-in-law { Trish’s father } very suddenly and very unexpectedly.

    “Pop” { as my daughter named him, as the first born grandchild } was seemingly healthy and young.  His death has stretched us to places we never thought we could or would go. We have walked day by day, relying on God and trusting in His plan…but it has not been easy.

Faith, Hope, Love…without these life can be overwhelming. Just as I have tried to teach my children about love { 1 Cor. 13:4-8 and Matt.22:36-39}...this year has also been about  faith { Heb. 11:1 and 2 Cor. 5:7 } and hope {Jer.29:11 and Psalm 34:18}.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to remember those three things… faith, hope, and love and to have a little reminder for our family each day…

As we enter the Valentine season, Trish and I hope that you and your family can hold each other tight, and remember these three things…
