The Valentine-Shaped Heart ARE WE THERE YET? - February 14, 2015 Though saecular-minded features far out-distance them, I've run across several articles and blog posts reminding us to keep the saint in St. Valentine's Day. And, don't get me wrong, I'm glad to see these reminders, but, I don't think the wine and roses ads or even the deluge of cartoon pink and red Valentine cards in the seasonal aisle at Walmart are an evil thing necessarily. I do imagine any one of the three St. Valentines of the first centuries of the Church would ...http://arewethereyet-davisfarmmom.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-valentine-shaped-heart.html

If Job crisply listed symptoms of our suffering, the Psalmist diagnosed us with a word: brokenhearted . The Psalmist also summarized the condition of each and everyone: we all have wounds . Into our wounded confusion Jesus came to heal us. Jesus came to heal us as one of us. Jesus knew confusion as we do: when hope begins to vanish; when joy bows to sadness; and when fading hope and flustered ...http://findfruit.blogspot.com/2015/02/sunday-word-08-feb-15.html
