I will share with you what I have come to understand---it is just another day on the calendar. It will only last 24 hours and tomorrow the world will continue to turn and life will go on.
You might want flowers--you might want candy-
BUY YOUR OWN---guaranteed to get exactly what you want this way. Better yet--buy them for someone else who will not be receiving the gifts of love.
You might want a special dinner
I never was a fan of eating out on Valentine's Day, but loved cooking a special dinner. Invite a friend over and enjoy a gourmet spread or a simple burger.
Pause and remember those who are hungry and alone---
As this day goes forth--look beyond yourself. Do not allow the world to convince you everyone else is out celebrating. Focus on others--perform small acts of kindness--hand out a warm hug--share a listening ear--gift a sweet smile. My day will be spent mentoring at school and tutoring at the shelter--and I will be blessed.
Tomorrow--the candy, gifts, and flowers are all on sale and Valentine's Day is quickly forgotten. Why not make every day an occasion for sharing your love? Above all else---never forget the One who loves you beyond your wildest dream- the Author of Love--the Giver of All Good Gifts---Your Faithful One.
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are
