“No Not a one — not a one.”

Valentine Card

“No 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 Valentine’s 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 35 Valentines 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 Valentine 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!”

     What is Christmas, Valentines Day or any Special Day all about ?

Giving from the Heart is the Essence of Love Receiving in  Thankfulness is it’s Aroma.
Love expresses it’s self in giving.
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
We give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for us in Christ Jesus.   1Thessalonians 5:18


Dear Blogging friends, I wish I could say like Chad… No Not One! but with once again having Computer problems, I have not visited you as I would have liked to have done but you are in my thoughts and prayers and please never forget we are Family in Christ Jesus.
Christian Love from both of us – Anne.

      Very True dear Velta, Jesus is our example in all things and as we are conformed into His image and perfected in His Love, we reflect His presence within.

      Thank you for visting us Velta, I often think of you and what you have been through in your life and yet you remain faithful, what a wonderful example you are to those who have been trapped by Cults and their deception.

      Hi Dei, wishing you and your Loved ones much Love for Valentines Day too, I hope it is very special for you. We were busy yesterday but had a lovely meal together with Nick, Ron’s Grandson, he is a lot like Ron and I Love him very much, he is quiet and unlike me, does not talk much but is passionate about Truth and against all types of injustice, he is a very special young man.

      Christian Love – Annie


  5. Beautiful post, Anne! 🙂
    Jesus loved us that we might love others too.
    “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” (1 John 3:16).
    God bless you so much. Regards to Ron.
