Their bees produced it!  They collected and bottled it!  Thanks to our son-in-law for
sharing his delicious homegrown honey with me.


I purchased this box of tiny glass jars from the Michael's Store.


With a funnel, I poured the honey into each jar, added a touch of color and decoration
to each jar.


I cut out paper strips of this verse from the Bible, appropriately chosen to go with
the jars of honey.  I folded them, and placed them on top of each jar, with a heart
sticker.


A simple way to let the ladies at our Bible Study, know how special they are to me,
this Valentine's Day.


Yesterday, we picked up the five local grandchildren, and brought them home for
a few hours.  Another simple, homemade way of saying that we love them.  I copied
a picture of each one of them, on my copier, and glued it onto a large paper
envelope, and placed a few special things in each one of the envelopes.  I cannot
believe how quickly they are growing up.


It does not matter how we say it, or what method we choose to convey it, the important
thing today, is to let the people you care about, know it, not just today, but often.

"If only I knew...
that anyone can bring
words of comfort,
encouragement and healing,
who knows how many lives
I might have touched."   ~  Lance Wubbels

"Gracious words", like the verse above mentioned, are more valuable than gold, in
today's world.

Happy Valentine's Day to each one of you!

 
A little something, just for you!

I love how you "treat" the dear people in your life .... those tiny jars of sweet honey,
I can almost taste it, with a verse and the envelopes with treats for the kids. You are inspiring!
