Happy Valentine's Day

'True love begins with the delight in the whole person and in the gift of each to the other. It matures through the journey of life, with the heart of love beating constant and strong.
And it reflects the One who is the source...'
~Dr. Craig Glickman

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
~Colossians 3:12-14




Be kind to each other, tenderhearted,

forgiving one another,
just as God through Christ
has forgiven you.
~Ephesians 4:32

Recently we received an invitation to join our friends, J&L, out for a romantic dinner just in time to celebrate Valentine's Day, but more importantly to share our hearts.
As we drove to our destination we were kept in suspense. We had no idea where we were going as we meandered country roads through towns and villages. The hour drive was so beautiful with many farms along the way.
The restaurant they took us to was called Grey Rose in the town of Hanover.

This is what greeted us as we parked in the back of the building:

But a cheerful greeting awaited us inside:

The Foyer...so beautiful!

Our friends booked a place near the fireplace
in the older section of the restaurant,
which was so cosy and beautiful...

Chocolates and Candles:

Amazing Buffet:

The dessert was wonderful,
although this photo won't do it justice.
The decadent cakes and squares were indulged in...

The food and fellowship was truly special
and we are so grateful to you,
J&L for your friendship.
Thank you for a lovely evening!
