One True Love

In this week filled with “love”—Valentines, roses and chocolate…I am thanking the Lord for His love.

Unconditional love.

Laura Woodley’s lyrics from “Into The Light” resound within my soul this Valentine’s day…words from the Lord to us….

I want her
I love her
She’s the one for me.
I choose her
I know her
My blood has made her clean
She is my true love.

Even though I have known the Lord for almost four years now, it wasn’t until recently that I truly completely began to understand and accept this love. It is a love like no other.


He will never leave you.
He will never disappoint you.
He is always with you.


This Valentine’s day, be grateful for your one true love.

His name is Jesus.
