Let there be Love . . .

Happy Valentines Day !
Valentines Day is a day to express your love
and to celebrate the spirit of love.


Love is a very powerful emotion. Spread it around.
Fill the world-- one person at a time.


How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose
I shall but love thee better after death
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning~

~ 1 Corinthians 13:13 says "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.~

Hi Cindy, Yes I did make the strawberry's and they are very simple to make. Dip a small section of melted white choco chip first and let them set up. (amatter of minutes) and then hold by the stems and dip each stramberry from side to side without covering up the white. I added the bow tie and buttons with a toothpick. Let harden and enjoy. Next year I'm going to try and make some more approiate for us and make them wearing overalls. Hope you had a lovely Valentines day and thanks for the sweet comment.
