Happy Valentine’s day!
One of my favorite holidays has arrived. I have a surprise waiting for my husband at home and I can’t wait to share it once he’s discovered it! I enjoy being sneaky and creative and showing him I care. Seriously, I love valentine’s day. But let me be honest about what gets me so fired up for this day each year. I don’t just love it because I have someone to share it with, and I don’t just love it because people show their romantic side, and I certainly don’t just love it for the gifts. So, why is this day so special to me? It’s special, because it always reminds me of an even greater love, one that I will never fully understand. A love so great, it was to die for. A love I can’t wrap my brain around. This love comes from the Lord. He sent his ONLY son into this world, who died for each and every one of us sinners and rose again, 3 days later. THAT is true Love (with a capital L!). God set the perfect example of love for us, because Jesus IS love. He gave up everything for us. So, let us always be mindful of this sacraficial love that was shown for us. And remember, love is something we should show 365 days a year, not just one. Show Christ’s love through your words, actions, and life. Always.
“We love because he first loved us.” -1 John 4:19
Amen. Enjoy your day!
