Valentines Day- Blessed To Give

“Not a one — not a one.”

Little Chad  was a shy, quiet young fellow. One day he came home and told his Mother he’d like to make a Valentines Day  Card for everyone in his class. Her heart sank…

 She thought, I wish he wouldn’t do that! Because she had watched the other Children when they walked home from school. Her Chad was always behind them.

 They laughed and hung on to each other and talked to each other. But Chad was never included.
 Nevertheless, she decided she would go along with her son. So she purchased the paper and glue and crayons. For three whole weeks, night after night, Chad painstakingly made thirty-five Valentines Day  Cards. As Valentines Day  was only a few weeks away and School was finishing up, Chad was beside himself with excitement! He carefully put his cards in his back pack, and bolted out the door.
 His mum decided to bake him his favourite cookies and serve them up warm and nice with a cool glass of milk when he came home from school. She just knew he would be disappointed — maybe that would ease the pain a little. It hurt her to think that he wouldn’t get many Valentines Day  Cards — maybe none at all.

That afternoon she had the cookies and milk on the table. When she heard the children outside she looked out the window.

Sure enough here they came, laughing and having the best time. And, as always, there was Chad in the rear. He walked a little faster than usual.

She fully expected him to burst into tears as soon as he got inside.She noticed His arms were empty, and when the door opened she choked back the tears.

“Mummy has some warm cookies and milk for you.”

But he hardly heard her words. He just marched right on by, his face aglow, and all he could say was…

“Not a one — not a one.”

“And then he added, “I didn’t forget a one, not a single one!”

By Gale Galloway, from Dream A New Dream.

 Giving from the Heart is the Essence of Love Receiving in Thankfulness is it’s Aroma.

 For God so Loved the World that he gave His one and only Son, and when we  believe in Him we do not  perish, we have Eternal life. – John 3:16


So Lets enter God’s gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with Praise, by giving thanks to Him and praising His name. For the Lord is good and His Love is never ending, it endures forever, God’s faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalms 100: 4-5

  1. Lord, lay upon our hearts someone we need to show love and kindness, with no thought of getting anything in return. Let Your love and concern flow through us to others.

      Thank you for that beautiful prayer meetingintheclouds and yes I say Amen too, it is such a blessing to give but it is also a blessing to receive. God tells us to be thankful always but if we are just just giving to receive back then He warns us we already have our reward but if we give as you prayed Angela unconditionally, then the thanks we receive we can accept also with thankfulness the same as Paul did when the Churches supported him and gave him gifts.

      Christian Love Anne.

    Chad had it right ,he had no other thoughts than those for everyone else, and was so happy to do that.I thihk that there is a biblical principle here somewhere , ‘do unto others etc ?


  3. Jesus love me, this I know
    For the Bible tells me so;
    Little ones to Him belong,
    They are weak but He is strong!

    Yes, Jesus loves me! Amen

    Nice story, Anne. 🙂

    I thought I knew where the ending was heading… that little Chad had it right. Ahhh… lessons from children… priceless!


    • Freedomborn says:

      Yes I was the same Karin, I thought it was going to be about forgivness but it was about unconditional Love shown in Kindness.

      Yes Children sometimes come up with some wonderful Truths but sometimes not so we do need to guide them for sure and set the right example.

      Thanks for sharing Christian Love Annie.

    Anne, what a great story! We often underestimate the power of love!


    • Freedomborn says:

      Hi Cathy how nice of you to visit, if you had time I would take you to the Garden for a stroll and refreshments, I’m pleased you liked the Story it touched my heart too, Love giving unconditionally is such a blessing not just to others but to ourselves as well, Love expressed in kindness always enrichers the giver.

      I will be over to visit you tomorrow, I need to catch up, I have been having eye problems and Ron is away till tomorrow, I gave up and just posted some stories but wil be visting again tomorrow I hope.

      Christian Love Anne.
