Good morning guys aka my God Brothers and Sisters! Hope you all are doing well today. God is LOVE and today is the day that is known as Valentine's Day, or as I like to call it, "LOVE Day"! After-all, we are commanded by GOD to LOVE one another and I don't know about you but I have to admit than I do love, me some HIM! HE's dealt with me before, for my personal disobedience in the past and much like my earthly father, and I don't want to disappoint HIM again.
