Happy Valentine’s Day, dear readers. For many of us this is one of the most difficult days of the year. We are alone, either through the death of a mate or marital betrayal and infidelity as was the case with me. Nonetheless, the world has said this is a day for “lovers”. Why not a day to love others, no matter whom they are? Why not a day to show love by giving back to those less fortunate?
I received a heartfelt reminder today from one of my bible study leaders reminding me that God loves us in all circumstances and His love is enduring. This is hard to cling to when our humanness has been shattered, but what a joy to know. God will not say “you are no longer what I desire.” He loves us for eternity. We all know one of the most recognized verses in the bible, but it is truly applicable on this day of hearts and love, NIV I Cor. 13:13, “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” Please show someone today you care about them, even if your “love” is no longer at your side.
