Amazing Love

My fella, the twin on the left, has been gone for over a week and still has a week to go.


My Valentine’s day was spent with the other three loves of my life…my children.

We ate a wonderful dinner together and also watched a fabulous movie called Amazing Love.

The movie was based on the story of Hosea and Gomer from the book of Hosea in the Bible.

It was probably a lower budget film, but, in my opinion, was a huge hit.

Hosea is a picture of God’s amazing love for us.

Hosea gives assurance that though God must judge sin, He always desires to heal and restore.

God wants us to acknowledge Him as Lord of our lives.

He wants to love us with His amazing love and He wants us to love Him back.

Please don’t ever question the love that God has for you.  Deal…

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

Have you read the book Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers? Fabulous book about Hosea. I could hardly lay it down when I read it a few years ago.

I've spent many, many Valentine's days without The Love of My Life during his military career and his Supervisor years on the Highway...they are less than desirable, but like you I had my children with me!!! They are the beautiful outward expression of our love to one another!!!
You have my curoisity up and I will begin this Chapter as soon as I finish the book I'm reading...nearly there!!! Thank you for a lovely post and for your inspiration!!!

Amazing can it be, that you, my King would die for me...
I love the words of that song. Your post reminds me of that song :)
I'm sorry your LOVE was on his trip, but sounds like a SWEET way to spend the day- with the kids. May have to find that movie.
Oh, and I adore that trophy!!
Lots of hugs

What a beautiful post Amy! I'm sure you missed your husband, but what a great way to spend Valentine's day - with a message of love.
I don't know too much about Hosea, but hope that my Bible study class will change that.
Thanks so much for your positive words here.
