Jesus and Valentines Day

The only love we'll ever truly need

Jesus and Valentines Day

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and while a great deal of people are going out with their spouses or significant others or are looking forward to their annual gifts of chocolate and flowers for this special day of love, there are some people out there who are depressed because, since they are not expecting any dates or flowers or chocolates or perhaps not even a Valentine's card this year, they are under the crazy yet all too real impression that they are not anyone. But I am here today to announce that there is someone who exists who loves us more than we will ever know or deserve to be loved. His name is Jesus.

I don't know about you, but I think that dying on the cross for faults that weren't even his, just so we can gain the hope of spending eternity in Heaven is a WAY larger token of love than any rose or heart shaped box of candy. Christ thinks we all are to, literally, die for. Humans are not perfect, although we at times may like to think that we are, but to have someone love us so much that he would die for us, and to have someone love us so much that he would want us to spend eternity with him in his kingdom, is amazing.

I have a message for anyone reading this: no matter what you've done, or what your past is like, NOTHING will ever stop Jesus from loving you unconditionally. He didn't die for the good and perfect, he died for everyone. He loves you, and wants you to come running into his open arms. Like the prodigal son, he wants us to come home to him. He will never hold our past against us-he isn't interested in that. He wants us.

And if that isn't the best Valentines gift there ever was, I don't know what is.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
