Do we wait until Valentine day to express our love to our love ones? How many times do you look your spouse in his/her eyes and say ‘I Love You?’ Sad to say some folks here these words only on Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We must show our love always, in the little things, holding of the hands, assisting each other with chores, playing games, taking time out to sit and share (not about the kids or our jobs) just to share with each other our innermost feelings. Don’t get caught up in the commercialized version of what love is, be genuine with each other all year round so when these occasions occur, it should be an extension and an opportunity to display how much we love each other.
I saw this poem about the greatest love for us and will share
God’s Valentine Gift
God’s Valentine gift of love to us
Was not a bunch of flowers;
It wasn’t candy, or a book
To while away the hours.
His gift was to become a man,
So He could freely give
His sacrificial love for us,
So you and I could live.
He gave us sweet salvation, and
Instruction, good and true–
To love our friends and enemies
And love our Savior, too.
So as we give our Valentines,
Let’s thank our Lord and King;
The reason we have love to give
Is that He gave everything.
