Valentines Day Fun

Happy Valentine's Day! I am up before the kiddos are to think about what I want to do on this day. I am not into Hallmark holidays so I don't expect much on a holiday like this. But I do want to teach my kids the meaning of love everyday! I think my goal today is to read 1 Corinthians 13 and have them narrate back to me what they heard. So hope you enjoy reading it too!
1 Corinthians 13 1:8
If i speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if i have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,,, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Sounds funny but I LOVE that scripture! Reminds me I should be those things daily. I also am leaving a link for the history behind Valentines day, just for fun. There should be some crafts included on this site.
