A Valentine from the Lover of my soul

“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.

Good morning sunshine

The Lover of my soul gave me sunshine in the morning.

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.
