The Day of Love

Valentines was so wonderful this year. As students we were busy with class and with homework but we still found time to celebrate! I made Josh red velvet pancakes for breakfast (a new Anderson tradition on valentines) then we had class all day but  we celebrated that night by making a heart shaped pizza, ( with heart shaped pepperoni) and we watched the newest twilight which we hadn't seen. Josh bought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and I felt so loved by him.Thanks to pinterest I found some fun printables and made a little basket of treats for him. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I love Josh with all my heart and am so grateful for the righteous, kind, and thoughtful husband that he is. I am truly blessed.  This year one of my professors began class with a devotional which was on Valentines and challenged us to think of our Savior's love for us. To look past the material things of the holiday and think of the love, compassion and sacrifice that our Savior Jesus Christ gives to us. We studied the account in 3 Nephi ch 17 when the Savior comes to the Nephites and blesses them, prays for them, and spends time with them. I am so grateful for our Savior's love and his atoning sacrifice. I felt of that love this year on Valentines day. I know that he knows us individually and loves us. I am so grateful for my Brother and Savior Jesus Christ.
