Happy “Love” Day, Friends!
As my husband Darnell and I approach this Valentine’s Day, I’ve chosen not to focus on flowers, a card, and dinner; rather, I’m more excited when I consider that it has been the faithful love of our Heavenly Father that has kept up together—smiling—for almost 38 years. Our care, concern, and commitment are stronger than ever. And, yes, we will indeed celebrate in some small way later today.
But, dear friends, don’t let this be a day of just celebrating romantic love—or bemoaning the fact that a special romantic relationship has evaded you. In fact, whether you are married, single, a celebrator of Valentine’s Day or not at all, this is a good time to reflect on the fact that you are loved today and every day by the Creator of the Universe and that He cares about every area of your life.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
So why not just decide to just let God’s love flow thru you today to somebody. Wish a senior citizen, a parent, an unloving co-worker, a single mom, or a stranger a “Happy Love Day”. If you get an odd look or response, just explain that you are happy about the steadfast love of God.
