A Box Full of Love

This is Valentine’s Day. Like many of us that don’t have a sweetheart I’m all by my lonesome self. But I have memories to fall back on; some people don’t have memories of a sweetheart. But anybody can be a “sweetheart” to somebody. Just spread love.

Something to give

There was this little boy who wanted to give something to his parents but he had no money, so he found a box and wrapped it the best he could. That was his present.

The parents were surprised when they opened the box and it was empty. “Why are you giving us an empty box,” they asked.

“The box isn’t empty,” said the boy.”It’s full of love!”

Do you have a box of love to give away?

Love is kind, I read this morning in the Chapter of Love (1 Corinthians 13). “Kindness is the insignia of a loving heart,” someone has said. Someone else put it this way, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”

More on kindness:

A kindness done today is the surest way to a brighter tomorrow.

Kind actions begin with kind thoughts.

Remember this: You cannot do a kindness too soon, because you never know how soon it will be too late.

Put the kindness from your heart in a box and give it to someone today.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
