Happy Valentines Day!

~Beautiful Dinner for Two from Victoria Magazine~

Today is a busy day for those of us who enjoy spreading love and happiness in the lives of those whose lives have touched ours.........So I thought I would share a special poem with you.  This poem was written about someone who truly, truly cared for another soul. The most special love that any of us will ever know is the love that God offers to us each and every day.  It's been said that love isn't truly love until it is given away!  Love someone today!


I love you,
Not only for what you are
But for what I am when I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you,
For the part of me
That you bring out.

I love you,
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things

That you can't help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

Roy Croft
