Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, 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 perseveres. Love never fails.
-1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)
And Love is…..John 3:16 (NIV) “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[a] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
My husband and I do not celebrate Valentines day. He gave me something the very first Valentines day we were together and said that would be it. He feels Valentines day should be everyday not just one day of the year.
You know, I hate to admit it but he is correct. We should show our love daily. We can pick any day to do something a little extra to say “I LOVE YOU.” I’m not saying there is anything wrong with Valentines day, but all the money that is spent in this one day, we should be willing to spend everyday to show the other person how much they mean to you.
Easter is coming up which to me is the best Valentines present anyone can give. Maybe we should celebrate Valentines day on Easter. The love that was shown to us by Jesus dying is so unimaginable. I am so thankful to have the Love of my God and my family. How about you?
Dear Lord, I pray for everyone today. Please give everyone the spirit to show love to everyone, even the people who have wronged us. Thank you for all our blessings and thank you for the Best Valentines day present I will ever receive. Amen.
