We Love Because He First Loved Us.

I think that is a such a lovely reminder especially as Valentines Day approaches.

If you’re wondering, yes, this is a little different take on my beloved cabbage rose. =P

But as I think of it, the love that God shows us – it’s almost like Him giving us each a cabbage rose instead of the normal roses that we give and receive on valentines day.

His love is often at first encounter – hard to accept because it is so ‘uncoventional’, so unconditional too. It is a love that is so profound and never-changing that will not wither…

So as Valentines Day is also a time to show our loved ones some appreciation, perhaps it is also a good reminder that we think about His love!

    Beautiful piece! I would recommend to change the lettering to a smaller size because when you check it on Preview, the first letter is cut a little bit. The processing takes off quite an amount from the original picture and it’s good to keep this in mind!
