Happy Hearts Day this love month, AMSdaily fans!

I feel blessed to be posting for this blog today, as I come to remember beautiful life details every time February 14 comes! But, for a brief love note- reserving to you the chance to write up your own love letter after reading- here’s my Valentine testimony for all of you! May you be filled with so much love!


February 14, 2013

My dear friend,

            I’ve been telling this story for years now..but the excitement to share it has multiplied over and over! If you haven’t heard of it, I am happy to let you know!

            One dark February 14 several years ago, I was ready to kill myself. The world had become too dark and lonely.. there was no love, only emptiness. My soul thirsted, that I felt I was ready for goodbye. And as in a final song, I cried to the Lord, “I’m on my way…you shall not bear with me again.. won’t you embrace me today?”

            And yes, for a heart that sincerely asked, He did. He embraced me and I felt it.

            My friend, how are you today? Are you there excited to meet with your date? Are you on the train, or in your car, listening to love songs- just trying to forget… You miss someone, figuring out whether to go see that person or not? Do you need to forgive, or do you think you want forgiveness and be free?

            Why not try it? Whoever it is, ask to be embraced.

            I hope you well! And a happy Valentine!

Love love love,
