This morning all our girls were in for an unusual surprise after assembly. A personalised letter was left on every student’s desk, with a special message on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. We hope they reflect on the wonderful words and special love the letter invites them to experience. Well done and thank you to the team for the initiative!

You may not know me, but I know everything about you. I know when you sit down and when you rise up. I am familiar with all your ways—even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
You were made in my image. In me you live and move and have your being. I knew you even before you were conceived and I chose you when I planned creation. You were not a mistake. I determined the exact time of your birth. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. I knit you together in your mother’s womb and I will watch over you and protect you.
I have been misrepresented by those who don’t know me. I am not distant and angry, but I am the complete expression of love. And I wish to lavish my love on you simply because you are my child and I am your Father. I offer you more than your earthly father ever could for I am the perfect Father. Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand for I am your provider and I meet all your needs.
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope because I love you with an everlasting love. My thoughts toward you are as countless as the sand on the seashore and I rejoice over you with joy. I will never stop doing good to you for you are my treasured possession.
I desire to show you great and marvelous things. If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me; delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart for I was the one who gave you those desires.
I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine because I am your greatest fan. I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles. When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you; I have carried you close to my heart. One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes, and I will take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth.
I am your Father, and I love you. In my son, Jesus, my love for you is revealed. He came to demonstrate that I am on your side, not against you, and to tell you that I am not counting your sins. Jesus died so that you and I could find each other again. His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you; I gave up everything I loved so that I could gain your love. Please know that nothing will ever separate you from my love. Come to me. Come home. I have always been your Father and will always be. My question is: will you be my child? I am waiting for you …..
Your Dad, Almighty God xxx
