I ♥…

Valentine’s Day is two days away.

It seems fitting to make a rundown of things that I love.

I ♥ encouragement.

I ♥ being appropriately humbled.

I ♥ when Beau does this in his sleep:

I ♥ honeysuckle.

I ♥ old English.

I ♥ that God has declared who He is in His Word, and that He has promised not to change.

I ♥ each and every time a Square Piece reader takes a minute to respond to a post.

I ♥ beautiful, unusual yarn.

I ♥ being still.

I ♥ the possibilities.

I ♥ Brian.  I love that when I was feeling a wee bit emotional and sensitive yesterday, we discussed that my breakdown wasn’t all his fault.  He was just the “straw that broke the camel’s back.”  Then Brian replied, “Yeah.  It takes about three straws to break it… with no weight.”

I ♥ salmon on my salads.

I ♥ that my mom raised me listening to G.T. and the Halo Express.

I ♥ group games.

I ♥ being surprised with unexpected free time.

I ♥ eyelash curlers.

I ♥ that moment when you step outside, realize it’s a gorgeous day and take a long, deep inhale through your nose.

I ♥ waking up to chirping, happy birdies.

I ♥ waking up to a clean, fresh blanket of snow.

I ♥ nestling my face in Esther’s fur.

I ♥ breakfast.

I ♥ family time.

I ♥ wearing jeans.

I ♥ fresh produce, fresh honey and freshly washed clothes.

I ♥ yard sales.

I ♥ when ink just glides so smoothly out of a pen.

I ♥ laughing.

I ♥ Christ’s example of selfless love.

What do you ♥?



  1. In no particular order…

    I ♥ my dog’s joyful excitement when he knows we are going for a walk.

    I ♥ walking my dog on sunny days, cool crisp days, foggy days, blustery wind days, snowy days, misty rain days, and at night.

    I ♥ studying Scripture with those who love to study Scripture.

    I ♥ laughing and studying Hebrew with my friend.

    I ♥ learning in homeschool.

    I ♥ taking long drives with my husband, enjoying the scenery and talking.

    I ♥ talking with my husband.

    I ♥ my husband and son’s humor.

    I ♥ that my family loves quoting from movies and books.

    I ♥ well-written books and movies.

    I ♥ the antics of cuddling of my cats.

    I ♥ being wrapped in a quilt with a cat on my lap and a dog at my feet in front of the woodstove on a cold day.

    I ♥ reading, looking at the stars with my family, gardening, scrapbooking, RVing, nature, and many, many other things.

    And I ♥ your blog!

    I <3 your blog, too!

    I <3 opportunities to express love all year long, not just Valentine's day.

    I <3 my husband.

    I <3 when the sun shines brighter during the times we pray. Like God is smiling down on us.

    I <3 that Charity knows when we're praying and joins us.

    I <3 my family.

    I <3 being a Mom.

    I <3 my twin, even though we don't visit or talk to each other as much as I would like …

    I <3 my small group family.

    I <3 kitty hugs and kisses.

    I <3 puppy shadows.

    I <3 God so much it hurts.

    I <3 that my husband always knows how to make me laugh, even when I'm super grouchy. And that he always takes the time to do it.

    I <3 that first morning in summer when you can smell fall coming and know it's almost jeans and sweater weather.

    I <3 the way the bed feels when the sheets are freshly washed.

    I <3 that color the sky gets at dusk in winter when it's all blue and yellow and purple through bare trees.

    I <3 cheese and crackers.

    I <3 cooking dinner for my husband.

    I <3 a warm cat on my lap when I'm sick.

    I <3 red toe nail polish.

    I <3 road trips with my husband–whether it's to another state or just out to dinner.

    I <3 a Saturday morning when I don't need to be out of my jammies until well after noon.

    I <3 my Daddy, who still sends me a Valentine every year.

    I <3 your attention to detail! The ink sliding smoothly out of the pen- yes yes yes! I love that too. This attention to detail is also what makes you a wonderful hair stylista 🙂
