Apparently, I am a terrible single person. Apparently there is this underlying rule that if you are a single female you must hate Valentines Day. I'm sorry, but I don't hate Valentines Day. My dad buys me a mini heart shaped box of chocolate with a teddy bear on the front and my mom buys me Bath and Body Words hand cream...what's to hate?! Even though I am single, I can still love...love. I always have been and always will be a hopeless romantic. I think it is a fabulous idea to set aside a day for celebrating what the very word of God declares to be one of the greatest things in the world. The Lord declares in I Corinthians 13:13,"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
Love is a wonderful thing. It unites. It heals. It protects. It gives. It bring life to the world.
Whether we use Valentines Day to celebrate the love between a husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, friend to friend, parent and child-whomever you love today, rejoice in that love. Give thanks for the people in your life that you get love on and who in turn love on you.
Who do you love today? Tell me about who you are celebrating!
Happy Valentines Day!
