Happy Valentine’s Day! It is on days like this, I am often reminded of how very sweet and precious love is. Now, in researching the origin of Valentine’s day and how it all came about…initially Valentine’s day did not originate as a celebration of love and romanticism. Nevertheless, this Valentine’s day is recognized by many of us, as a way to show our loved ones how much we love and appreciate them. Valentine’s day is a time to not only show our loved ones, how much we love and appreciate them, but an opportunity to soak in all of the love and affection that is in the air. People seem a little sweeter, air a little lighter, and more joyful. There is something about “love” that has an amazing power and energy that resonates in each and every one of us. Love is light, joy, peace, and happiness all rolled up into one and delivered from one being to another. Love exudes gentleness, patience, and is filled with all the intangible nutrients and vitamins one could ever need and one could ever want. When we fill ourselves with the power of love, and operate in love and in truth, there is no stopping you and if everyone operated on the same wavelength with one intention, which is to love oneself and love for others, the world would heal much quicker and we would be lifted much, much higher. Now, I say this to challenge to make every day, a celebration of love.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthian 13 4-7
