#COMMITYOURHEART:        St. Valentine’s-Style Love

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34 NIV Happy belated Valentine’s Day! Sorry, there was no post last week for our #COMMITYOURHEART Movement month. I had a family emergency with my Mom. She had a nasty infection that made her lethargic, so she went to the emergency room.
