Valentine’s Dessert 2 – 4.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor & Sharpie
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Here is your second calorie free dessert for Valentine’s week. The
pastry was from a reference photo by Mo at WetCanvas. The plate and
doily are all me!
Sophie at Just4Crafters has a cool tutorial for a Valentine’s Day card. I may try my hand at it today. It looks like so much fun. She had a cool birdhouse (The Love Shack) tutorial before that, if you have a little more time on your hands. Thanks Sophie!
Junius Lucien Price (January 6, 1883 – March 30,
1964), who also published under the name Seymour Deming, was the author
of more than a dozen books and a writer for publications such as The
Boston Evening Transcript and The Atlantic Monthly. At the time of his
death at age 81 he was still writing for the Boston Globe. Source: Wikipedia
With love comes promises of sentiment as rapturous as fall’s
splendor of color and as delicate as a crystal of snow. Love empowers us
to handle the struggles that bind us, the struggles that stretch us to
grow. The familiar sights and muffled sounds of each moment vibrate with
greater intensity when we’re giving and receiving love.
We’re deluded to think the love of others will complete us, so
we strive for it; we long for it. But we receive love only when we’re
unselfishly offering it. It is one of life’s wonderful mysteries that we
must first give love away if we hope to get it.
Loving another tests our patience, strength, and security. Love
spurned is dreaded and perhaps too familiar, but we must risk it once
again if we are to find the love we deserve.
The gifts of love are many and guaranteed when the act of love is honest, unselfish, whole, and unconditionally offered.
