“I hate Valentine’s Day!”
I said that – recently. But it’s not really that I hate the day, just that I don’t like being reminded everywhere I turn that other people are in love when I am not.
But this Valentine’s Day is different. Today I chose to see the gifts that are already mine; to live with joy. Today may not be a day of roses, greeting card sentiments, or romantic dinners, but I have enjoyed the gifts from the Lover of my soul.
The Lover of my soul gave me sunshine in the morning.
The Lover of my soul gave me a glorious shimmering web.
The Lover of my soul gave me a sky washed with soft white clouds.
But most of all, I remembered that Jesus Christ, the Lover of my soul, gave his everything to show me his love.
Thank you Lord for your love, it is precious beyond all things. I love you because you first loved me.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
