Happy Valentine's Day ~ 2009

A Tribute to the Patron Saint of Love

Where there is love the heart is light,
Where there is love the day is bright,
Where there is love there is a song
To help when things are going wrong,
Where there is love there is a smile
To make all things seem more worthwhile,
Where there is love there's quiet peace,
A tranquil place where turmoils cease
Love changes darkness into light
And makes the heart take 'wingless flight'
Oh, blest are they who walk in love,
They also walk with God above
For God is love and through love alone
Man finds the joy that the SAINTS have known.
~Helen Steiner Rice

True Love
True love is a sacred flame
That burns eternally,
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny.
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear,
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear.
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds,
And true love holds with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines.

~Helen Steiner Rice

JD and I wish you all a Valentine's Day
filled with love and happiness!

Jo, I love the looks of your blog. It's so colorful !
Usually you use a picture on the top of it. Is this hard to do ? I want to learn your magic !!

I only have the one picture of myself and that's because I TAKE all the pictures. I am so tired of looking at it and it has to be boring for others.
Do I use that navbar box? I am so clueless......
If it's simple, could you let me know ?
Otherwise, I think I will put the golden retriever's picture there, ha, ha.......
Lovely job, Miss Jo !!!
