This week’s blog post is by KC Newbill! Here’s a snippet of it…you can read it in its entirety on our webpage Idlewild.org/women 
💗 “Over the last four years I’ve learned the meaning of these three things in a different way. I’m now the mom of two adult children…both of them are in their late twenties.  My daughter Christi married Mackenzie and a few years later they were ready to start adding children to the family.  She suffered the loss of two babies, one by miscarriage, and one by an ectopic pregnancy that caused all of her greatest worries and fears to happen at once.  Through lots of tears, fears, and pain we prayed and asked God to help us keep the faith. We continued to hope. And they opened their hearts to fostering children in an amazing show of unconditional, self-sacrificing love.
We have learned to love with open arms and hearts.  We have learned that the color of the skin doesn’t change what’s on the inside.  We have learned that God is good even in the midst of tragedy.  He can turn ashes into beauty, and tears into cheers.” 💗

KC we appreciate you sharing, thank you!

Valentine’s Day, Be Honest 🖊️ by @jodie.montgomery 
 
My Mom and I tend to share with one another expensive cards that say over the top things about the recipient. We choose the cards with lots of writing in them and embossing. We also like pop out cards with flowers and hearts. When we give one another these cards, we prefer to read them out loud to one another. You would think this would be a reverent moment, it isn’t. We can hardly make it through the readings. My Mom will laugh so hard that she tears up. The reality is, we adore one another, including our flaws. And these cards reflect character traits that remind us of God…not one another. But we still exchange them because in a wonderful way, love highlights the best in each of us. I love my Mom and she has heroic status in my heart.
 
All that to say, love speaks honestly to another. At the heart of flattery isn’t edification, rather selfish ambition and distrust. Love sees potential. Love is kind. Love doesn’t brag or sound arrogant. Love humbly guides. Don’t forget 1 Corinthians 13 amid a holiday that supposedly celebrates love.
 
Sometimes our longing to encourage may slide over to saying things we really don’t know about another. I think Valentine’s Day is for established relationships. An anonymous Valentine can scare as much as delight. I appreciate a day set aside to confess love to another. As with many traditions and celebrations, the origin and history of Valentine’s Day has its’ controversies. Which Saint? Paganized, Commercialized, or Charming? Handmade or Hallmark? I value the written word and communication, so I am pro-Valentine’s Day. My stack of Valentine’s is growing, time to buy stamps…invest in true love.
 
Psalm 12:2 They speak lies to one another; they speak with flattering lips and a double heart.
