Magic of Childhood Heart Beeps
Placeholder Image
"Mommy, can you hear ‘em?" my 4-year-old gasped as he crash landed. "My heart beeps are so loud!"

My smile slowly widens as I thumb through his preschool photos.

This week, some hearts will pound a little harder as they open their Valentines. Many friendships and loves will be strengthened by these genuine gestures. Loads of others will silently plod through the day until it's over.

As I seal my cards in their little pockets, I feel relieved. I don't have to doubt my first love. God has, and always will be, the one who knows me best. He knows my heart and all of its ways. There are so many kinds of love in the world. Above them all, is the love that God gives.

"Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in Heaven above and on earth below. There is no other" (Deuteronomy 4: 39 NIV).
