♡ Happy Valentine's Day ♡



"Every morning that breaks,
There are mercies anew.
Every breath that I take
Is your faithfulness proved.
And at the end of each day,
When my labors are through,
I will sing of Your mercies anew.

When I’ve fallen and strayed
There were mercies anew.
For you sought me in love
And my heart you pursued.
In the face of my sin
Lord, You never withdrew,
So I sing of Your mercies anew.


And Your mercies, they will never end
For ten thousand years they’ll remain.
And when this world’s beauty has passed away
Your mercies will be unchanged.

And when the storms swirl and rage
There are mercies anew.
In affliction and pain
You will carry me through.
And at the end of my days,
When Your throne fills my view,
I will sing of Your mercies anew.
I will sing of Your mercies anew."
- Mercies Anew, by Mark Altrogge and Bob Kauflin.

Moment of truth!  No, I do not have a boyfriend or a Valentine this year.  However, after hearing that song, I really believe I have the very best Valentine of all: my Heavenly Father.
In verse 2, of Mercies Anew, I felt it spoke the most about His love for me; a rotten and foolish sinner.  Even when I've tried to do things or live my life my way, stayed, try and figure things out alone, or just forget, He pursued me.  He pursued me!  The last part is what really gets me...
"For you sought me in love
And my heart you pursued.
In the face of my sin
Lord, You never withdrew
,"
In the face of my sin, not Billy Jo's, but my sin.  He wants me.  He's the best boyfriend any girl could ask for!  He's always coming back, always faithful, and loves me unconditionally.  That right there is a true love and it's mine!
And another thing, I don't think Single Awareness Day is what this day should be called. It should be called something like A Savior's Unfailing Love Awareness Day. ;)
Now tell me whose boyfriends better? =)
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
