Happy Valentine's Day! On February 14th, people all over the world will celebrate LOVE. Yes, this is the day set aside for sweethearts,but it can be celebrated by everyone. It doesn't really matter if you have that special love interest, there is someone who would appreciate a kind gesture of love from you.
I was speaking with a co-worker today and she mentioned getting a phone call from a former boss, wishing her a "Happy Valentine's Day. " Apparently he had watched something on television reminding him that Valentine's day may not be very special for those who have recently experienced a relationship loss, through a break-up, divorce, or even death. Because she had gone through a divorce in the last year, he wanted to remind her that he was thinking of her and that God loves her. I thought to myself, what a wonderful way to celebrate the Love Day!
Hallmark and flowershops nationwide will be extremely busy and make a lot of money. It's amazing that the world tells us when and how to celebrate the ones we love. This year, find a new way to celebrate your love, to be remembered for years to come. Back in 2010, my husband and I agreed that we would not purchase Valentine's day cards for one another. Instead, we wrote valentine letters. Now, this is our tradition, and I get so excited by the fact he has taken the time to express his love in his own words. I have read those letters over and over again. In fact, I better get finished writing this blog so I can finish my letter.
Above all else remember John 3:16, For God so LOVED the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoseverr believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Share your love with somebody today.
