Word Art Wednesday #21

Happy Wednesday!!  Today's word art is from 1 John 4:19.

While looking for photos to use on my layout,  I thought, why not use a photo of myself?   So I found a photo that was taken on my first birthday many years ago (smile).  Seeing that photo brought to mind one of the first songs I remember learning...Jesus Loves Me.

Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so,
Little ones to Him belong, they are weak but he is strong.
Yes Jesus loves me, Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me, for the bible tells me so.

In the NIV translation of the bible, today's word reads...We love because he first loved us.  God is love and God loves us.  We are extremely valued by God.  Not because of anything we have done but because of His perfect love.  It is God's love for us that gives us the power to love others.  Love...His perfect love...that flows from Him to us, empowers us to love.
