I had some thoughts to share about Valentines Day, but the honest freshness of my friend Kristy’s perspective expressed it far better. Read it and be blessed:
Tomorrow will start the flood on Facebook of all the lovely flowers, candy, jewelry and other niceties given to the many women I know who are committed in some fashion to their other half. A lot of single people find the day really depressing. They believe what the media tells them, that in order to enjoy Valentine’s Day, you must be in a relationship with a significant other.
Let me tell you the real truth! Valentine’s Day is not a day strictly devoted to couples. It is a day you can choose to show love to anyone special in your life! If you are single, you could choose to show love to your parents, your siblings, special young people in your life, special older people, widows, orphans, and special friends. You could even show a little extra love and kindness to a stranger.
Tomorrow, I plan to celebrate the love I have for my daughter who lights up my life and makes me laugh. I will smile and I will enjoy the holiday as I do all the rest. Peaceful and content in who I have in my life.
For all my friends who are in relationships, post those pics of your beautiful arrangements! I would love to see them.
Lastly, I hope that you will remember the greatest love story and that is:
“For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life”
God loved you so much that He sent his only son to die on the cross for your sins. That is Love! ❤️ ❤️
Didn’t I tell you? Thank you, Kristy, for reminding me that true love is about so much more than hearts and flowers. True love puts God and neighbor first as we give thanks for His Presence and kind provision in our lives. Happy Valentine’s Day!
All to His Glory!
