Well my friends, it’s that time of year again. You know - red hearts, pink roses, balloons, cards, candy, and animals that sing songs of love.
Store shelves overflow with symbols of love. They began the day after New Year's to get ready for Valentine’s Day. Do you know that more roses are sold on that day than any other day in the year? All over the world, it is the day that people show their love for someone special. It is a great occasion to express love and appreciation for any of your loved ones, but it is just as important to show little acts of kindness the other 364 days of the year.
Flowers will die. Candy gets eaten. Balloons will pop. Stuffed animals may stop singing. Cards may get lost or thrown away, but the love that is shared with one another, and God’s love for us, will never pass away.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed." Isaiah 54:10
Isn’t it wonderful to know that we have the amazing love of an amazing God?! God tells us in His Word how much He loves us. He promises to never leave or forsake us, to answer us when we call, day or night. He never slumbers nor sleeps. Just as we should tell our loved ones how much we love them, we need to tell God how much we love Him 365 days a year.
So this Valentine’s Day, let’s rejoice and be thankful for amazing love…of family, of friends, and of the amazing God we serve!
Happy Valentine’s Day & Many Blessings!
