This Valentine’s Day will be different. We have no plans for chocolate-laden-Hallmark sentiments. No outing to a romantic hideaway. No fancy evening on the town. No large gifts or extravagant trinkets. Just a day spent lovingly focused on our family. The four of us together celebrating our wonderful family unit.
I can think of no better gift to give to my husband and children on Valentine’s Day than my time and focus. Can you?
I believe that it is appropriate that Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, because it is a day devoted to God. Who better than our Lord to show us the true meaning of LOVE? Because he IS love.
And speaking of LOVE, one of my favorite Bible verses of all time is this one: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Happy Valentine’s Day!
