greg and i celebrated valentine's day a day early, on saturday night. i joke that we've been married long enough now that celebrating on the actual day isn't important anymore. and we don't buy each other gifts. now we just enjoy anytime we can be alone and go out for a nice dinner. so that's what we did.
by now, greg and i have experienced some of the best days of our life together (getting married, the birth of our babies) as well as the worst (jonathan's diagnosis, burying our child.) we have also, by now, most likely seen the very best of each other as well as the worst. and while it's easy to love someone in the good times, we still choose to love each other during the not-so-good times.
this kind of love is worth more than diamonds or gold.
God truly knows all my flaws and short-comings, and He knows all the things about me that i'm not proud of. yet, he still loves me in ways that is above anything even my husband can offer me. i looked up the hebrew concordance for this verse and came up with this further interpretation:
what a beautiful picture of how great the Father's love is for us. this kind of love is worth more than anything this world has to offer.
