“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

Valentines has always been a favorite "holiday" of mine. I love it because it's pink, girlie, and just all around fun! Some of my favorite childhood memories are of making the Valentine box in school what is more exciting than a shoe box covered in construction paper and decorated with hearts. Then oh the excitement of watching it fill up day after day more and more cards, I LOVED IT!

Still as an adult I love Valentine's Day I still feel the excitement of the day, and try to make it great fun for the kids. I just found and signed up for a Valentine Goodie Swap at An Island Life.
A fun way to get to know a fellow blogger and send them a little gift for V-day and someone does the same for me...fun!

In order to help the person who get me learn a little more about me I am supposed to answer a few questions.

What is your idea of a romantic Valentine’s Day?
Beautiful candle lit table with fresh tulips and romantic music playing in the background

In reality, what is your Valentine’s Day really like?
Last year I believe we ate Valentine Pizza and watched Cinderella

If you could have a lifetime supply of your favorite sweet indulgence, what would it be?
Nutella...so many possiblities you can slather it on almost anything

Is there any sweet treat you absolutely do not like?
Black liquorice

If you fell into a pool of chocolate, how would you get out?
I would reach for the hand of my hubs making him think I needed his help, but really I would pull him in with me and we would live out our lives in silky goodness
