A LOVE LIKE I HAVE NEVER SEEN!!!


1 John 3:1

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God.


In the year of 2009, I was blessed with my first grand-baby from my middle daughter; a little girl, 4 pounds and 7 ounces. Three years and one week later in 2012, I was blessed with a grandson from my oldest daughter, 8 pounds and 7 ounces! Needless to say, my grandchildren are the love of this GeGe's life! 


Praislyn Kate and Isaac-William Shepherd are total opposites!!! 


She is...............................................beautiful, nurturing, very gentle, has a heart of gold, organized, full of priss, the boss in private, a giggle box and the sweetest little blue eyed girlie girl ever!


And he is.................................... handsome, loud, a little mess, caring, happy, full of energy, loving, and your typical rumblie, tumblie, blue eyed... all boy!!!


Both are only children at this point in their lives. They are first cousins and THE BEST OF THE BEST BFF'S!!! 


You can never take my granddaughter into a store to buy her anything that she doesn't ask if Bubbie can have something and you never can give my baby grandson candy or grapes or anything that he doesn't find a way to divide it out for him and his Sissy! It is crystal clear for all to see that those two love each other! 


Every Sunday morning big cousin is usually on the stage practicing singing with her mommy when little cousin burst through the sanctuary double doors screaming...WHERE'S SISSY AT???


The two cousins meet every Lord's Day racing down the Church isle and hug like it has been years since they have seen each other! You can literally see and feel the love that twinkles across my babies faces when they embrace! They both love with everything inside of them! 


Every Cousin reunion I am always reminded that true love never fails. That is exactly how PURE God's love is towards us! You can literally feel it flowing down upon us from our head to our toes!!! The most vivid characteristic of our God is He is a God of PERFECT LOVE!!! 
It is hard to comprehend the GREAT love that Jesus Christ had for all humanity! I can't even imagine! I did not deserve Christ's love yet he gave it to me freely! That is just the way He is, He loves us so much that He laid His own life down so that if we choose him, WE ALL can have eternal life! 


Did you know that GOD WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU????


Some people have a hard time with today's date. Not everyone has someone to show them love today or shower them with elaborate gifts. 


Man may withdraw from us at times  but we could never withdraw from the presence of God Almighty! There is no where we could ever go to escape His precious love! 


NOTHING - no pain, no horrible circumstance, no problem, no bad situation is impossible for my God; too much for my God to handle or will ever escape the gentle touch of our amazing Saviors love! His love bleeds into every tiny fiber of our life! 


God loves you and He loves me today and every day of the year UNCONDITIONALLY!! 
Today is the "BIG" day set aside for love! 


DON'T LET THE DAY GO BY WITHOUT SHOWING JESUS THAT YOU TRULY CARE! LET HIM BE YOUR FIRST LOVE! 


Happy Valentines Day :))))))))))))))))))))))))

  1. I love this devotional, and I so agree. Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate love, not just romantic love, and what greater love is cause for celebration than the love my Heavenly Father has for me? Thank you for this reminder, Pam. Happy Valentine's Day to you, Beautiful Lady. I love you and am thankful for you!
