JASPER, Ga. – Many see Valentine’s Day as a day to show a little extra effort toward someone special. It is a day set aside to spend a little extra effort to show someone they are special and worth the effort. Regardless of how or why it was created, it is generally a special day for those who celebrate it.
You, like me, may think about love and this day while having someone specific in mind, a significant other, a family member, or something of that sort. Look around and you can find all sorts of reminders of romantic and amorous love. But once in a while, someone will come along and remind you of true compassion for others, a love that supersedes the romance that can give us tunnel vision.
Enter Aden Fillion. He is a sixth-grader in Pickens County Middle School (PCMS). And last year at Valentine’s Day, Aden got an idea.
As he looked around his classes on this day, he began to notice something that bothered him. Not every girl was getting a candy gram for Valentine’s Day. On a day that is meant to show how much love there is in this world, there were girls in his school that were “left out” as he says.
When he noticed this, Aden said he felt the pain: “When they felt left out, I felt left out.” It was something he couldn’t stand to see. The thought came to Aden that he wanted to make sure every girl got one of these candy grams on Valentine’s Day.
Though he didn’t speak of the issue right away, the thought stayed with him until September. Speaking to his parents, Jessica and Clint Fillion, Aden revealed his hope for this year’s Valentine’s surprise. After debating on how to accomplish this feat, Jessica eventually decided to try setting up a GoFundMe page. She admits now that she wasn’t too sure about how much success the page would get.
Two days later, $300 had already been raised for Aden to accomplish his plan. A feat that shocked Jessica and emboldened Aden. With everything ready, the Fillions needed only to wait until this month to place the order, keeping the secret until now.
Always having been very compassionate and empathetic, Jessica says her son Aden constantly wants to give people things. Constantly wanting to see people smile, Jessica added of Aden, “He is very loving.”
The awe of the day was shared by seventh-grade teacher Sue Watters, who helped run the carnation orders with BETA club. Watters stated, “Wow, for a kid to have that level of empathy is unheard of in middle school.”
While in the past, the counselor’s office has handled candy grams, according to Watters, this year changed as the BETA club decided to handle the Valentine’s items. Thinking about February as Heart Health Month in addition to Valentine’s Day, BETA decided to do carnations instead of the candy grams.
As Jessica and Aden began talking with Watters about Valentine’s Day and what he had planned, they began planning and ordering for all 225 girls in PCMS. There was only one issue – last year’s candy grams cost $1, but this year’s carnations cost $2.
As of today, few people have been privy to this plan, but every one of 225 girls is walking out of their middle school today with a carnation, and a reminder of the love that people can have for each other. Through community support and a little help from BETA, Aden’s plan has been fulfilled, and one student reminded everyone of what we can accomplish for each other.
What Aden didn’t know was that BETA was selling the carnations to help the seventh grade finance their field trip to Atlanta in April. With some students needing help to be able to go on the trip, Aden’s plan snowballed larger than even he had intended. Diving into his plan, Aden said he had never gotten discouraged. Talking about the plan, he kept going back to saying, “I wanted them to feel happy.”
Each flower that he sent came with a note attached, “Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.” A quote from Albus Dumbledore in the book, and film, Harry Potter is a note from Aden and his mother’s favorite movie to explain his hope for those of his class, a note of the happiness he wanted for them.
THE LIAR: ARE YOU A LIAR/YOU ARE GOING TO HELL
It looks like, for sure, all liars will go to a burning hell!
*The Lie**,* The devil’s foundation is built on it. The devil lied to Eve
in the garden and brought sin into the whole world, upon all mankind.
*Lying spirit*: The devil is a liar and a deceiver. He comes to take away
God’s best for your life and God’s promises to you. He comes only to steal,
kill, and destroy you. The Lord wants you to be free from the attack of
your enemy, the devil.
· Jesus died to break Satan’s power, and set man free.
If there is such a thing as the world’s worst sin, it would have to be
lying.The devil’s power base for his sinful, fallen world is built on it.
· Prov 19:22 “A poor man is better than a liar.”
· Prov19:5 “A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that
speak lies *shall not escape*.” Ops
· Pro19:9 “He that speak lies *shall perish.” (That’s scary)*
· Ps101:7 “He that works deceit shall not dwell within my house.
· He that tells lies shall not tarry in my sight.” O, What hate God
must have for the lie. Watch your tongue.
John 8:44 Jesus said;” Ye are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of
your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not
in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he
speaks of his own: *for he *is a liar *and the father of it.”*
If you lie, you are speaking for the devil. When you lie, Jesus says that
the devil is your father.
Acts 5:3 “But Peter said, Ananias, why hath *Satan filled thine* *heart to
lie* to the Holy Ghost. Why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart?
Thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.”
Jesus has defeated Satan. He spent a lot of time teaching us who, and
what the devil is like.
Jesus has taught us that in his name, and by his power, we too can defeat
him every time. Submit yourself to God resist the devil, and he will flee
Just how do you think Father God feels when you neglect all of his
promises, and all of his provisions for you, and lie? The Father must weep
when you reject the shed blood of his own son, who is the truth. If you
leave the truth and accept the devil’s lies, that means, right now you
think the devil can, and will help you and put you over better than God
If you are a liar, it is because you are being influenced by the demon of
insecurity, and inferiority. You think you cannot be represented on your
own merits, so you borrow the devil’s power, which is always deception. You
depend on the lie, not realizing you are calling on the wrong father, the
Devil to prop you up.
When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar *and the
father of it*. If you use a lie, to manipulate someone to accomplish your
will or purpose, you have just used the doctrine of the devil and showed no
faith in God. That makes the devil your father. If you are the head of your
house, and you are a liar, you will have a cursed house, and it will run
through your family line until you repent. You have given the devil a seat
at your table. Who’s *your daddy*?
Let’s look at where the lie will put you in the end.
Rev 21:27”And there shall in no wise enter into heaven anything that
defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, *nor maketh a* *lie.”
Watch what comes out of your mouth.*
Rev 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, *and all liars*
shall have their part in the lake *which burns *with *fire* *and brimstone*
Rev22:14” Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have the
right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers,
and idolaters, and whosoever *loveth and maketh* *a lie.”*
My friend if you are a liar you can’t go anywhere, but to hell. Notice the
word says you are the *same as a murderer.*
Lying is something not to be taken lightly, yet many people are chronic
liars. If you have a family member that is a liar, I think he is in danger
of a burning hell. Go to him help him.
The jailer said to Paul Sir, what must I do to be saved? Paul said, “Believe
on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved”. Just believe and ask.-
