Valentines Day is for everyone!

For the first time since 1945, Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day fall on the same date this year. How interesting!  Today I am reminded of how this special day relates to all of us.  Whether you're coupled, an item, long time married, or presently flying solo.... the GREATEST expression of love is God's love that he has for each of us.  Let me give you some wonderful examples.  

John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,".  It's hard to imagine ANY of us sacrificing our ONE and ONLY child! But God did it for us! He loved us SO much that he gave his only child.  That is something to keep in mind if you are feeling negative about the thought of being "alone" this Valentines day.  You really are never alone. Remember that verse! 

Or how about 1 John 4:19 which says, "We love because he first loved us,". There is no doubt that all of us need to be reminded of this simple yet POWERFUL verse. We love.... BECAUSE...HE loved us.  And God loves us more than we love him.  What a concept. 

And if you do have a special someone to celebrate today with, I am hoping that you use your time today, with that person, as a  moment to recognize God is a presence in the relationship.
