Valentines Day Weekend is coming up and I thought it would be fun to do a valentines day devotional. I went in my scriptures and searched for "heart", and I found, in Doctrine & Covenants 137:7-9
7 "Thus came the "voice of the Lord unto me, saying: All who have died without a knowledge of this gospel, who would have received it if they had been permitted to tarry, shall be heirs of the celestial kingdom of God.
8 Also all that shall die henceforth without a knowledge of it, who would have received it with all their hearts, shall be heirs of that kingdom;
9 For I, the Lord will judge all men according to their works, according to the desires of their hearts.
The phrase "desires of their hearts" caught my attention because that is how we will be judged.
In Section 64:22 And after that day, I, the Lord will not hold any guilty that shall go with an open heart up to the land of Zion; for I, the Lord, require the hearts of the children of men.
It is important for us to know the real and continuing war we face daily and that it's for possession of our hearts.
Satan is so subtle in his attacks that we scarcely know when he has won a battle, like when we watch TV instead of reading our scriptures, for it is how we spend our time, and our money, that shows what the desires of our hearts are.
These are Cinnamon rolls found from Gourmet Mom on the Go. Here is the link to her recipe:
I've actually found where the bulk "Red Hots" are located - Yea! They can be found in the Winco bulk section by the chocolate chips / baking goods.
