Monday February 14th – Friend’s Day here in Finland
You won’t find any mention of Valentine or Valentine’s Day in the Bible, but it’s a gift from God nonetheless!
As I mentioned yesterday in Finland Valentine’s Day is better known as friend’s -or friendship -day, and these Fazer chocolates, presented so beautifully on a heart-decorated napkin, were a gift to the women at the Monday Group. They brought a wonderful smile to everyone’s face on a night when most had battled to get there in Siberian-like sub-zero temperatures.
This is a new group for me, but already I feel very welcome, start to feel safe and can feel the first roots of friendship stirring – that too is a wonderful and timely gift from God!
