Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

Valentine

We read the story of Saint Valentine this week. It was during a time when marriage and Christianity were outlawed in the Roman empire. But Valentine married couples in secret and was also devout Christian. Because he would not deny his faith he was sentenced to be executed. During the time he was in prison he fell in love with the jailers daughter. Before he died he sent her a letter and signed it "From your Valentine". Thus we sign our Valentines today with that inscription.




Love Never Fails
by Brandon Heath


Love is not proud,
Love does not boast,
Love after all, matters the most.

Love love does not run,
Love does not hide,
Love does not keep locked inside

Love is the river that flows through,
Love never fails you

Love will sustain,
Love will provide,
Love will not cease at the end of time

Love will protect,
Love always hopes,
Love still believes when you don't

Love is the arms that are holding you,
Love never fails you

When my heart won't make a sound,
When I can't turn back around,
When the sky is falling down,
Nothing is greater than this,
Greater than this

'Cause love is right here,
Love is alive,
Love is the Way, the Truth, the Life,

Love is the river that flows through,
Love is the arms that are holding you,
And love is the place you will fly to,
Love never fails you
