Yesterday, as we all know was Valentine’s Day. I find people have very strong emotions and opinions in regards to how they feel about the holiday. I for one love Valentine’s Day. I have loved it for the last few years many of which I was single. Don’t get me wrong I would have rather had my husband to spoil me like he did yesterday, but we were very on and off and usually we were conveniently off on this particular holiday.
Anyways, Valentine’s Day! I love love. I heard the whole “It’s a commercial holiday invented by greeting card companies and chocolate salesmen!” and I have heard the “You don’t need a special day to love someone. You should express your love every day.” I agree that the day has been commercialized, but what holiday hasn’t. I also agree that we should let those we love know every day but I think a special day a year where we can step back and reevaluate how we’re loving is great! IT’s like thanksgiving. Yes we should be thankful year around but that day comes around to remind us to check our focus in this busy and distracting world.
My day was awesome! My husband spoiled me. My love tank is very full. I hope you had a great weekend. But if you didn’t, I hope you will shift you focus to the ultimate Love.
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:16
We love Him because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19
So matter your stance on the day, if you know that you are loved by a God who literally is love that's something worth celebrating!
Hope you all have a great week. Lots of great post coming up this week so check back!!
I have been
crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and
which I now live
in the flesh
I live by faith in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave Himself for me.
