One of my favorite things about Valentine's Day is making and delivering Valentines. Twice a month, I'm in charge of activities for a group of 8-11-year-old girls from my church. We've made it our tradition over the past couple of years to make and deliver Valentines to some of the widows and other single women from our congregation. It's just a small gesture, but one that has brought a lot of joy to people who might otherwise be forgotten on Valentine's Day. As we drove around delivering the cards today, I was so touched as I watched one woman smile in delight and then walk out onto her porch to give each of the girls a big hug! Smiles and warm hearts all around, I tell ya! Here are some shots of the Valentine-making process today.
