Kade has been ecstatic about going to his Valentines Party at school for three weeks. He couldn't wait to get in his "Handsome Clothes." I must say he is one Handsome little man. I hate how fast he is growing up. Avery got dressed up in her Valentines best to take daddy out on a Valentines lunch date, so cute. She has become completely insane over dresses and pink,.....sigh! I have to convince this little one that other colors are pink like, red. I lie to her. I figure I can fix whatever damage I do. Her colors might not be spot on after I convince her of how versatile the color pink can be. This cheesy grin smiley is so typical of our Avery. We are absolutely in love with our Valentines. Happy Valentines week, you know it last all week, every good holiday does!

Empires have crumbled beyond utter demise,
Based on the potential of Its most glorious prize.
Others have risen above all else imaginable,
Hoping to grasp just a portion of what’s possible.
Great rulers have kneeled with heads hanging low,
To honor the glory of Its wondrous glow.
The heartless have climbed mountainous peaks,
Looking for the change their void-filling seeks.
The world has been searched from end to end,
For the soul healing power, It has to lend.
Yet It has never hidden nor does It deny,
The willing and able to stand by its side.
To the Greatest, It came easiest of all
And for It He suffered, to His Father he did call.
Though by Itself, It occasionally stands,
It will soon be met by those glorious Hands.
It is the purpose of life and also life’s cause,
To become who He expects during this fleeting pause.
But somehow you’ve obtained more than the limit,
And spread It freely without exhaustion or benefit.
As a benefactor of your perfectly endless supply,
My muscles are strengthened, my head is held high.
Because I know I’m worthy of Eternity’s only reward,
I will dream big, for everything is what Love can afford.
