Happy Valentine’s Day!

In looking back, I came to realize I participated in my first Five Minute Friday a year ago. And so for that reason, today being Friday, I want to repost my very first thoughts on Five Minute Friday….

My 1st Five Minute Friday. I decided to take the plunge. Beloved. Yesterday was Valentine’s Day. So easy for me to say, “I am beloved” or “I feel beloved”. I have a husband that loves me deeply. Not that we haven’t worked to get to this point. Lord knows we surely have & worked HARD. But this morning I am thinking of times I did not feel beloved. And that makes me think of those that may not have felt that yesterday. I have some in my life that are alone – single, widowed, divorced. And so this morning, I pray….

Lord, be sure to make them KNOW that they are YOUR beloved. May their focus not be settled on the feeling that there is no one in their life. Come alongside of them & whisper – NO SHOUT – into their hearts & minds that they are beloved by You. Today may they know the depths of Your love for them. May they know that You are with them, before them, behind them & encircling them.

Beloved – greatly loved; dear to the heart. That is what they are to YOU.

Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders. ” (Deuteronomy 33:12)
