A Different Kind of Valentine's Day
Happy Valentine's Day!
I always enjoy this holiday because it reminds me how much I am loved by God, my darling husband, my wonderful children, my precious family and dear friends. I could feel really down because my husband is away from me this year for Valentine's Day. I was thinking back, we have spent Valentine's Day together for the past nineteen years. Wow! O.k., I could get very sad, but instead I am going to concentrate on what I do have this Valentine's Day. Three children to hug, two furry dogs to chase, a family that surrounds me with love and sweet memories and dear friends that fill me up with fun and happy times. This holiday has really been captured by commercialism. Forget all of the stuff our culture says this day should be. Cut past all of the unrealistic expectations to the LOVE part. The best place I know to go for pure love is God.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
Now that's what I am talking about! What a Valentine's Day present. He can fill you up to overflowing and then some. I know that is a good place to be and I am camping out there!
Thank you Lord for this Valentine's Day. It is different, but I feel loved up to the very top!
