There is a woman in our town who started a lovely tradition several years ago.  Her name is Nancy Hagge and she sews and stuffs hearts all year long in preparation for February.  Her hearts are pairs connected together with string and they are made from brightly colored fabrics.  They magically appear in various places on February 1st and remain for the entire month.  One can see them all around town hanging from tree branches mostly but also in the gazebo on the green, on front doors and porch railings.  What a welcome surprise on a dreary day to round the corner and behold the wondrous sight.  It almost takes your breath away.

February hearts

I made my own little homemade valentines.  There weren’t so many this year and they were made from felted woolen fabric and embroidered with floss.  They were actually little pockets, and each one held a tiny card with a special message.embroidered Valentines

But of course. the most special “Valentine” ever given was Jesus.  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
