St. Valentine's Day

Pink perfection added to the neutral whites here (sharing with White Wednesday).  Such happy pinks, don't you agree?  I hope you are enjoying your St. Valentine's day.  I'm feeling incredibly blessed for the loves in my life - my dear husband, children, family and friends (including you!). 







I'm sending special prayers out today for those I love who are struggling with illness, job loss and sadness.  My dear college friends and I just spent the weekend in Vermont.  A beloved spouse of one of these friends is living in the advanced stages of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).  The strength of the love in that family holds them together, day by day.  I'd appreciate any prayers you could offer for Frank, Heidi and their two boys.
All I can think about today is the power of LOVE.  It defies despair and has no end.
Thank you.

Beautiful pix Susan. Praying for your loved ones that God will surround them as only He can and uplift them. My sister-in-law lost her dear mother to ALS and it was heartbreaking to watch. Prayers for all !!
