My Funny Valentine...


This is our first Valentines' day with Logan (you all know this). But this year, I find myself really thinking about love...unconditional love--the kind of love a parent feels toward his child (no matter how often they mess up). My parents often showed my sister and I this kind of unconditional love...patience....and understanding. All of these, I hope to show to Logan throughout his life. He is such an amazing little baby. It is hard to believe we have been home for over a month now and he is 6 weeks old! Though he has tried my patience tonight...a bit fussy and mommy is very tired, I look at him squirming here in the boppy beside me on the couch and know that Chad and I love him more than life. He truly amazes us everyday.

One of my favorite passages in the Bible is I Corinthians 13, aka The Love Chapter. Chad and I had this read as a part of our marriage cermony and it is one of my favorites. I have copied it here...

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. (

We had a great day...spent some time at home early and then went over to Savannah's house to sit for her for a few hours while Mimi had to run out. She is so funny and loves her cousin "Logey". Another example of unconditional love...

There are examples everywhere...but the GREATEST example is that of Jesus Christ and how He died for all of us. His Heavenly Father loves us so unconditionally that He made the ultimate sacrifice...His son.

The Hoene's are so blessed and LOVE that we spent this Valentine's Day with our son...enjoy the pictures!

Staci and Chad
